Oh guys, life is so crazy busy and I am barely keeping my head above water.
Last week's theme is such a powerful theme, because the words "like a girl" have probably hurt each one of us at some time, regardless of gender. But girls are amazing, not weak, not irrelevant. Girls are taking over the world. They are resilient, strong, full of heart, and most importantly, they are making their way in our world mastering strides never available to women before now.
Girls are amazing. I am proud to be one, to do things like one, to be raising two strong little people who change the connotation of "like a girl" every day.
This group is vulnerable, connected, growing, and cooperative. I love it.
Like a girl.
First up. Powerful image. Girls can kick your ass.
Thank you Amy. Watching you grow as a photographer is a joy for me.
Little girls need to know they can do anything. They can win anything, be anything, defeat anything. They can hit things HARD. Like a girl.
And this one. Danielle, I can't even type without choking back tears. The feeling here - vulnerable/alone/torn shows the ravages of the war of "like a girl".
Girls can kick cancer's ass.
Nothing personal, but these 2 images were so moving, I thought they should stand alone for this week.
If you know a girl who is struggling, who is being too hard on herself, a girl who needs your help, tell her she's GOT THIS.
We've got this. together.
The other submissions were lovely. But these 2 made me cry. Thank you so much for your participation in this space. It means the world to me.
