  • Helly engages people in a lighthearted and fun way that promotes community connection and wellness through a shared experience.

  • Booking Helly means platforming young people (people under 30) therefore encouraging youth engagement. She is trained in working with children and has worked with, and performed for children in 3 countries, as shown here in Indonesia, here in Nicaragua and here in Australia.

  • Girl power effect - female teachers and performers offer healthy role modeling for young girls; similar to here where she returned to give a speech and perform at her old high school.

  • Accessible and inclusive: Artist is professionally trained in theatre, character/clowning and community engagement, and has worked with children with special needs to be inclusive and engaging.
