Ms Nicole Gibson

Nicole Gibson

Nicole is committed to making a positive difference in the lives of young people. After overcoming mental health challenges as a young person, in particular anorexia nervosa, Nicole is channelling her energy into motivating other young people to be the best they can be. In 2011, Nicole established The Rogue & Rouge Foundation to reverse the stigmatisation of mental health, body image and self-esteem issues in Australia’s young people.

As the Foundation’s Chief Executive Officer, Nicole dreams that every teenager can look in the mirror and smile. Nicole is tackling the epidemic of low self-esteem by creating community outreach programs and working directly with schools, service providers and education departments in both central and remote parts of Australia. Nicole has recently completed her national youth motivation tour, 'Champions for Change', which has since seen her facilitate workshops at 300 schools with 50 000 young people across Australia to encourage young people to champion change in their communities through the development of innovative solutions. 

Ms Gibson was a finalist for Young Australian of the Year 2014, named as one of Australia’s 2012 Young Social Pioneers and is a current finalist for The Pride of Australia Medal.

"Even the most disadvantaged Australians should be able to lead a 'contributing life,' whatever that means for them and this simple goal will be our touchstone and yardstick."
