I remember being ten. It was fun. That sense of freedom, when your summer holiday feels never-ending and it’s all sleep-overs and how much flavoured sugar you can convince your parents to let you have. I definitely did not get asked to perform on the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury like our youngest ever Gurls Talk guest, Princess K, did. This year alone, she has managed to tick that off her list, as well as dance with the icon that is Lauryn Hill – all before her 11th birthday.
This was a truly wonderful chat which touched on so many things. We spoke about her hopes of opening a dance studio and starting a charity, what it feels like to dance in front of 150,000 people and how dancing is a wonderful way of letting go and being yourself.
But beyond dance, we talked about how to battle body shaming, confidence, embracing yourself, dealing with rejection, the stresses of social media and chasing your dreams.
With so much talent, and such a wise head on her shoulders, there is no doubt in my mind that this 10-year-old has got one hell of a future in front of her.
Enjoy listening. And just so you know, we’re taking a break for August. So, have a mad, beautiful, brilliant month. We’ll be back in September, batteries recharged, ready to talk about body and skin.
