“Growing up isn’t just about popping pimples and trying new things. Growing up is about finding a better world, confronting the realities of life and realising the people in power are incompetent. Growing up is about disappointment, guilt, community, love, and recognising privilege and systematic oppression. Growing up is about creating your space.” – Lucy Watson, editor-in-chief
