"Making my story was a great experience to me. This short story carries strong words that I want to tell my daughter one day when she grows up. Growing up, I saw women who believed that their dreams, hopes, and desires don’t really matter. I saw women who believed that because their voices would never be heard, it’s not worth it to fight. As time passes, my fear grows. Fear that my daughter will believe what is being said to her and lose the strong personality that she was born with.
