For Captain Charlie, the music she writes is a gateway to a better perspective. She believes that we should not define our lives by the adversity within them, but rather that we should use that adversity as an opportunity to become stronger and braver. Through her music, she hopes to remind people that something better exists for us all, that it is always within reach of determined hands. We all have struggles. We all have challenges. We all feel defeated from time to time. But it is how we handle those moments that defines who we are. We must only judge ourselves based on who we were, not on the standards of others. We must always look forward with hope, and look backward with forgiveness and understanding. And we most always remember that we all carry a light within us, that we are all beautiful, and that we are all capable of shaping our own future, our own destiny.You are strong, you are beautiful, you are a light, and you are loved.
