In the letter, Solo offers advice to herself that all teenage girls and adult women can take heed to. “Words only have power if you choose to give them power. every once in a while they will hurt, but you will choose to turn those words into a symbol of beauty,” she shares on embracing unfavorable comments and making the choice to express herself through language with her music.

And you will feel good about who she is and who she is still becoming,”
