A.N.P. is 21, this is her uncensored diary from her years 18 to 20. She questions how girls are being presented everywhere in public; skinny bikini models smiling convincingly to us from boards; half naked, moaning pop queens who claim their sexual virginity at the end of the video. The way girls and women appear in public life and media doesn’t match with her own life and how she and her female friends live their lives. A.N.P. wants to show us girls who are far from perfect.
