Advice for teenage girls with wild ambitions and trembling hearts.

“There would always be those who say you are too young or delicate to make anything happen for yourself, but they don’t see the part of you that smolders. Don’t let their doubting drown out the sound of your own heart beat. You are the first drop of rain in a hurricane. Your bravery builds beyond you, you are needed. You don’t need to grow up to find greatness. You are so much stronger than the world has ever told you, you could be. The world is waiting for you to set it on fire. Trust in yourself and burn.” – Clementine Von Radics

Little girls with big ideas are much scarier than monsters.

Clementine von Radics is a poet, editor and essayist whose work centers around the queer femme experience and its relation to romance and the body, particularly the sick and/or disabled body.

Clementine served as a founding collective member of Slamlandia, Portland, Oregon’s first and only scored slam, as well as the Slam Master at the Portland Poetry Slam, Portland’s oldest and longest-running spoken word event.

Clementine was the winner of the nation-wide PSI sponsored video slam in 2016. As a slam poet, she has competed at the Individual National Poetry Slam, and the Women of the World Poetry Slam, and performed on the finals stage of the Individual World Poetry Slam. Her poems from these and other events have been viewed over a million times on YouTube.

This poem “For Teenage Girls” has been featured on Huffington Post, Upworthy, Everyday Feminism, and was chosen by Button Poetry as their 4th best poem of 2015. “For Teenage Girls” has since been adapted into an illustrated book by Andrews McMeel Universal.
