"Never give up doing what you love, even if it means encountering sometimes awkward/possibly sexist situations. It's hard but think of all the women who came before us in cartooning + other careers, and think of all women in the future. Together, we can do it!!"

"Forget your gender. So many people think that being female defines who we are, who we can be, and what we can do. It doesn't. There is no gender, no sex.
