Author(s): Lou Hamilton
A treasure box of over 100 drawings to help girls and women around the world feel that anything is possible. A book for life.
Insightful and timeless, this inspiring little book offers a humorous and inspiring path to fearlessness. Inside us all is a Brave New Girl just waiting to get out and with every drawing and thoughtful saying, each page is an invitation to pause, reflect, smile and take actions.
The naïve hand-drawn character of Brave New Girl shows us how to be tenacious; if she can't do something, she invents a way round it. If she is afraid, she challenges herself to move past fear and into courage. Through her we see that by using our imagination, our creativity and our purpose, we can create a meaningful and happy life. She is the antidote to a scary world.
When you feel anxious, fearful, frustrated, angry, or down in the dumps, just open the book to a random page and see what message Brave New Girl has for you. Carry the book with you, share it with friends and loved ones; enjoy its simple truths and wisdom. Then go out and be that Brave New Girl.
Lou Hamilton is a writer, artist, coach and award winning filmmaker. One day, sitting in her belated grandmother's armchair, about 30 years after her last drawing class at art school, Lou felt motivated to pick up her pencil again. With her daughter about to leave school and head out into the big wide world, she wanted to create a series of little drawings and inspirational messages to help her feel fearless. As she drew, Lou created a character who was everything she wanted for herself, for her daughter, and for all those women, young and old, who are maybe too afraid to be all that they can be.
