How Do I Be Me?
By Kyra, aged 14 from the UK
Tell us about the artwork.
My life and what it's like to be a Demigirl in today's era with multiple amounts of media! It's a visual representation of how I see myself, as well as the world around me. And a mind map on questioning who I really am. I think these are all topics that any woman/non-binary person of any age can relate too. You can read my blog here.
What inspired you to make your artwork?
Definitely the help from Lou and Elora [facilitators for the WOWsers: A Creative Explosion exhibition]! I always knew what I was going to do, but they really gave me the motivation and the ideas to start. The WOWsers sessions and WOW Sounds music also inspired a few of the ideas.
What action would you like people to take to make the world better for girls and non-binary young people today?
I would love it if people would accept all individuals, no matter where they are on their journey of self discovery!
