Willow Smith is maneuvering through her teenage years pretty smoothly and it’s because she’s fearless enough to be her own person.
When it comes to walking her own path, Willow credits her parents for teaching her how important it is to not let society dictate her character and try to be trendy.
She tells i-D Magazine:
“I carve my own path the way I do is because of the way I was raised.
“My parents always said, ‘If you don’t carve your own path, someone’s going to carve it for you.’ And that’s not fun.”
She makes me so proud.
She has a pretty good head on her shoulders. I hope that doesn’t change.
I still think she’s weird.
