In a time where barriers to entry for artists are vanishing, there’s no need to conform to the idealistic image of a 20-year-old to create music or art. It’s crucial to share your authentic journey, not just the highlight reel, and embrace your true self. Ignore the biases, whether they’re based on age, gender, or other factors. You’ll face critics and negative comments, but with time, you’ll grow resilient and care less about others’ opinions. Be unapologetically yourself, and the only way to shatter those biases is to keep doing your thing. Remember, it’s all part of the journey.
