What is Sisu?

Sisu (see soo) is a Finnish term loosely translated into the English language as strength of will, determination, bravery, perseverance and acting rationally in the face of adversity.

What is SisuGirls

SisuGirls was founded in Singapore in 2014 to inspire and encourage sisu in my 5-year-old daughter.  SisuGirls launched in October 2014 with the aim of encouraging sisu in girls through adventure programming and by introducing strong, positive and healthy role models.  For three years we organised skateboarding, running and rock-climbing programs in Singapore and Hong Kong.

What is happening now?

After three years of programming in Singapore and Hong Kong we have relocated back to rural Australia and are concentrating on settling in to a new way of life and spending more time in our amazing natural environment.  Therefore, we are taking a step back and will re-launch a new version of SisuGirls when the time and the opportunity is right.  In the meantime, our three hardcover children's books are still available for sale and our stories of sisu are available for free download.
