I wanted to be a unicorn. I wanted to be a lawyer. I wanted to be an astronaut.
But the thing I really wanted to be, more than anything else, was a little less like me.
It was only recently that I realised not wanting to be me was at the heart of every dumb decision I ever made. And so now I am writing this book containing all the life lessons I wish someone had taught me.
A book for the teenage girl in me. And for every teenage girl out there. Because the most powerful thing you can be when you grow up is yourself.
Frank and fearless, YOU GOT THIS openly explores topics like self-respect, body image, masturbation and mental health, making it the perfect companion for young women.
