Almost Grown Up

  • Education


My book is for girls teenagers. It is a kind of an essay about becoming adult and being a girl in a contemporary world. I'm writing about gender stereotypes, consent and other issues of growing up. Statistics shows the generation 14-29 years is sharing some values in common, such as the will to success in the professional field and a very open and positive position to the diversity. Ukrainian girls are very tolerant and open-minded. I would like to write this "manual" about being "adult" and "growing up" without stereotypes.
