One of the reasons I love A:TLA so much, is because they have these strong female characters. Azula is a villain, but she’s still a determined, ambitious, strong-willed, and unbelievably talented. Katara is one of those amazing girls who can be feminine, yet strong. Fierce, yet loving and protective. Mai shows that you shouldn’t judge a person on their outward appearance or manner- that there’s really more than meets the eye. I can relate to Smellerbee so so much as a teenage girl insecure about my appearance- but Smellerbee isn’t ashamed of how she looks, or how someone might judge her. Toph is such an amazingly awesome person; She’s so brave and tough, but then there are those moments where she tears down her walls and you see her for the sweet little girl she is underneath. Ty Lee puts on such a happy disposition, and is so optimistic and caring towards everyone, but she hides so much pain and hurt inside- and that makes her unbelievably strong. Yue is so brave; Can you imagine giving up your life willingly just like she did? She was called on to protect her people, and she did so without a moment’s hesitation. Suki is everything i want to be: Sweet, brave, strong, kind, and just perfect in every way.
