Mulan ★★★★★

This movie was and remains very important to me. As an only child in an environment where expectations were really high, I grew up feeling so much pressure to meet my family's standards and I would often be an anxious mess at the idea that I would disappoint.

This movie showed me that you might not fit the role your family wants you to fill but you can still be yourself and make them proud, and that was a really important message to my pre-teen self.
