Dear future daughter,


Whenever you feel lonely or unloved, know that the two people who brought you into this world are always there for you. You will always be loved by us. You might not feel it, or we might not always express it, but we do love you.

If you have a dream, pursue it. Never let anyone tell you what you can or cannot do. You are only limited by boundaries you set yourself.

Study and study hard. Not for the grades, but to gain knowledge.

It’s perfectly fine to be different. In any way. Standing out from the crowd lets you see things differently. You may feel isolated, but this will only be temporary. Staying alone will always be better than being with the wrong people. Friends play an important role in shaping our future and also in shaping us as human beings.

Learn to fight for yourself. Learn to raise your voice when no one else will.

To be successful, you cannot stay in your comfort zone and just think about your goals. You actually have to work to achieve those goals.

I hope that, in the future, society will be safer for girls than what it is now.
