“I want to say to all the young women out there…”

I’m neutral about Taylor Swift’s music, so the only thing that made my day when she won 2016’s ‘Album of the Year’ at Grammys was her acceptance speech.

I want to say to all the young women out there: There are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday, when you get where you’re going, you will look around and you will know — it was you, and the people who love you, who put you there. And that will be the greatest feeling in the world.

As a young woman, I can relate. It’s daunting sometimes to push yourself to keep going when your environment tells you that you’re not good enough or makes false promises. But you have to. Not to prove them they’re wrong.but to prove yourself you’re right.

But to prove yourself you’re right.
