LOU HAMILTON brave New Girl How to be Fearless a treasure box of drawings to help girls and women around the world feel that anything is possible. a book for life.
With her daughter about to leave school and head out into the big wide world, Lou Hamilton wanted to create a series of 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.
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. Insightful and timeless, this inspiring book offers a humorous and inspiring path to fearlessness.
lou hamilton is a writer, artist, coach and award winning film-maker.
