Twenty future leaders are relishing the chance they've been given to hear from their role models at a major event in Launceston.
Thanks to a donation from Bell Bay Aluminium, the students are attending the Rotary Club of Tamar Sunrise's annual International Women's Day breakfast on March 4.
Brooks High student Indya Young described it as an amazing opportunity.
"I'm just looking forward to hearing some of the women speak and just tell their stories about how they've come to be in their career and what they've had to overcome," she said.
"It will just be great to hear from them."
