The Quirky Kid Clinic, Cartoon Network and Torah Bright (Winter Olympic Gold Medalist) have collaborated on a project in the search for 10 Australian girls (aged 5-12 years) identified as positive roles models for tween girls, known as “The search for Gwen’s 10”.

Kimberley O’Brien, our Principal Child Psychologist and the Quirky Kid team played an important role in developing the  survey questions and providing consultation in regard to the following tween qualities. Gwen’s 10 Tweens are:

  • Confident and Hardworking
  • Honest and Loyal
  • Friendly and Compassionate
  • Quick-witted and Individual
  • Adventurous, Levelheaded and Smart

Recently, Torah visited s Catholic schools to meet some of the girls.

If you feel you meet any or most of the characteristics above and want to be recognized as an example for other Australian tween girls, head to http://www.gwen10.com/ and complete the survey.

Together with a panel of experts including Editor of Total Girl Magazine, Amanda Nicholls, Kimberley O’Brien, Torah Bright and the ever-confident Gwen Tennysen (Ben 10) will inspire girls to stand up for themselves through Cartoon Network’s “Search for Gwen’s 10”.

The Quirky Kid Clinic works with organizations – small and large – providing support for the development of projects, programs and products. Find out more in our About us section on this website or meet some of our clients.
