Melissa Newman-Evans, an actress and poetry slam performer, performed a poem entitled 9 Things I Would Like to Tell to Every Teenage Girl at the 2015 National Poetry Slam in August. 

Shared this week on YouTube by Button Poetry, the poem calls out the insecurities and challenges many girls experience on their way to womanhood — as Newman-Evans puts it, things that seem like "the world is trying to kill you."

Agreed, girls should look and dress however they want.
