Growing up to be pretty

Amazing, passionate and powerful piece on growing up to be pretty by Katie Makkai:

“The word pretty is unworthy of anything you will be and no child of mine will be contained in 5 letters. You will be pretty intelligent, pretty creative, pretty amazing but you will never be merely pretty.”
