"Welcome to the hallowed halls of Princess Monster Academy! Here the future leaders of the monster world are prepared for their responsibilities. Come walk the halls with me and view our portrait collection to learn more about some of the fascinating students who have attended our school..." One day I was sitting at the kitchen table with my son working on a monster puzzle, and it occurred to me that there weren't many girlie monsters. And I thought about how boys are encouraged to be monsters and superheroes and girls are told that they can be princesses. And I thought it was time to offer something different to girls, an option that focused more on what they could do than what they looked like. So I started creating Princess Monsters. And these characters as they were born on the page told me their stories. They told me how they loved wrestling and gardening and science. They told me that they wanted to be who they were un-apologetically. As I continued creating these characters it occurred to me that we all struggle to accept our unique selves in a world determined to fit us into boxes. We all try to fit in, because we want to belong. But finding belonging at the expense of our true selves is not what we need. What we need is to find and celebrate our uniqueness, to accept our differences, and even those parts of ourselves that maybe we don't like. And then to go out into the world showing our true selves, and allowing those who belong with us to find us as we truly are.
