Thanks for sharing this. Not sure I would have seen it otherwise. I admit, when I was a kid, I did not love being a girl.

LaLisa - glad I could spread the great message of Eve's latest! honestly, i'm not sure i liked being a girl way-back-then-either. But I also didn't grow up in an empowered space that told me it was OK to be an emotional creature. Girls need to have this support and this knowledge and trust of their intuition and emotions and their power early early on.
