Welcome to Liliepads!
My name is Amanda Kennedy, and I’m a girl [woman] on a mission.
I’m a student at a women’s college near Philadelphia, PA with a lot still to learn about the world around me. But from what I do understand, So many people in the world around me have become victim to a superficial sense of beauty, one that focuses on too many numbers (waist size, scale digits, calories counted) and drug-store products (hair dye, pouty lipstick, magic creams) and not enough inner confidence.
I want to change that, starting here. Starting now.
I fall prey to this mantra at times, too, so I hope that this blog will serve as a constant reminder that there is so much more beauty out there than the constructed kind. (Think paper dolls made out of glossy national magazines.)
I have been writing since age 5, beginning with stories about girl superheroes, flowers and other magical things. My writing today considers secret worlds, journalism and deep thought. I am still amazed after all these years how words can transform and lead people to see what is truly important in this world.
Liliepads is my web site where I chronicle musings, hopes, wishes, and understandings for the world. I want to show everyone the beauty that I see and feel: food, love, girl power, sunny days, whatever it takes.
