Growth is a book that explores how a woman’s attitudes towards herself, and in general, change positively with age, looking past the elements of ageing that are purely superficial. Through Growth I hope to highlight the positive aspects that come with ageing, such as confidence, experience and knowledge and show that life is about different stages and ageing isn’t something to be afraid of. I would also like to highlight how life isn’t always a linear journey and can peak and expand at different stages. The wonderful women who took part in my book and allowed me to quote them within it, share a variety of wisdom and positive insights into their experience of ageing so far. I hope this book can act as an inspirational tool for younger women in their 20's, to show them the exciting stages of life that they are yet to experience and have to look forward to and break down the negative stigmas in relation to ageing as a female.
