    Confidence + Happiness in Teen Girls, with Matt Lee

    In episode 3 of the Raising Girl Shaped Flames podcast, we are talking about the relationship between confidence and happiness within teenage girls. Our special guest, Matt Lee, is the ex-COO of QANTAS and a father of 5, including twin 16-year-old girls. During our chat we explore the possible correlation between happiness and confidence: Is a confident young girl guaranteed to be happy or is a happy teenager more likely to have increased confidence to explore those questions? In our 9 minutes of Neuroscience, Dr Diane Harner takes us through how the teenage brain behaves when happiness is activated, looking at those reward systems and she is going to talk to us about the link that DOES exist between confidence and happiness.
