Are you ready to become a WISE role model?
Complete your very own profile by following the instructions below:
- Click ‘Create Your Own Account’ and then on ‘Role Model’.

Completing The My Skills My Life Quiz
- You can then browse the platform itself to have a look at your personality types in more depth, and to explore the other role model profiles through the ‘explore’ button.
- When you’re ready to create your profile, please click ‘my Role Model Profile’ in the sidebar.
- You then need to click ‘Actions’ in the top right corner, and ‘Edit’.
- There are a few different questions for you to answer and there is space for you to upload further photos. Please ensure that you’re using language suitable for 11-19 year olds, and avoid using acronyms. Please write your answers in first-person. Note: When completing your profile, please remember that girls, in general, tend to identify more with adjectives. They respond more strongly to your role’s bigger picture and impact as they’re looking to find a way to identify with you. The more personal your response, the greater the impact you can have with them!
- Once you’ve finished answering the questions, please click ‘Save’ at the bottom right of the page.
- By clicking ‘Actions’ again and this time ‘View Public Profile’, you will be able to see what your profile will look like to the girls.
