Becoming Lily Bird is about the freedom we must give ourselves in each moment as we develop and find out who we are. I find it so important to give yourself the freedom to experiment with all aspects of self, especially for pre-teens. Acceptance of change and how we present ourselves to the outside world, as we develop our inner worlds at the same time, can indefinitely be challenging. So many kids and teens are not fully embracing their individual gifts and personal quirks and suffering for it. I know it took me a long time to find the unconditional love for my own and through this shoot and my actions, I want to help promote a healthy love and ownership for these things for each person, young and old.
