To cope with her grandma’s illness, this toddler dressed up as her favorite female role models.
Meet Scout Penelope, an adorable 3-year-old who has already captured the world’s attention. How so? By dressing up as her favorite female icons, who include iconic artist Frida Kahlo, beloved actress Carrie Fisher, animated Pixar heroine Moana, and even “Nonnie” (her grandma).
“When Nonnie’s hair started to fall out, Scout got very concerned and I wanted to put both of our minds at ease. I needed to teach her and remind myself that women are fighters! We chose famous & fierce women to teach her about the strength that women have.”
Not only did the photo series help Scout cope with her family’s struggles, it cheered up Nonnie who is now cancer-free! Additionally, it taught Scout’s mom some surprising lessons. She confessed,
“This project has probably taught me just as much or more than it taught my daughter. I truly want Scout to be able to look back at this and know that women are just as strong as any man. And to be quite honest, my fingers are crossed that by the time she’s old enough to understand the strength she’s portraying- women won’t be seen as delicate and dainty anymore, anyway. And I hope that when Scout looks back on this, she is proud of who she is and who she will become.”
Scout impresses in the following photographs, in which she dresses up as strong female role models:
