Gabriella Gilkes, Engagement Lead for the Eden Project, will interview actor and author Rosie Day about themes ranging from the road to success and women’s empowerment, to finding your voice and direction in a challenging world, to mental health and the life experiences inspiring Rosie’s new book Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon – a manual for teenage girls on how to discover the power they have to change the world for the better.
Actress and mental health ambassador, Rosie is best known for playing the role of Mary Hawkins in the Golden Globe nominated Outlander. Rosie’s debut book, Instructions for a Teenage Armageddon, is now available. The book is a one-stop guide to empower teenage girls, covering a range of themes including self-worth, finding your voice, mental health, imposter syndrome, and so much more. An ambassador for STEM4, one of the UK’s leading teenage mental health charities, Rosie has worked closely with teenage girls across the country, providing guidance and encouragement. The topics in the book have been inspired by the conversations Rosie has had over the years.
