These images illustrate a direct reply to the times I and others say the sentence “I’m not like other girls.” Society and the media made me feel that being feminine was shameful, and something about it was inferior. For this, I started performing through fashion and fallen hobbies. I did not want to be like “other girls.” Because girls “run like a girl” and “act like a girl.” I sought for external validation from the absence of my gender. Somewhere along the way I realized I am “like other girls.” Now, I am capturing this journey and embracing everything feminine.
