Drawing inspiration from Billie Holiday’s 1939 hit “God Bless the Child,” this story is a portrayal of a young, rebellious female character, so sure of herself, as she discovers her indignity and path of life. Her presence is unapologetically sexual, unashamed to act out on matters that society deems as taboos; the character stands her ground, making a living the best way she knows how and refuses to let lack of financial means and her surrounding diminish the pride she takes in the way she looks and in being her authentic self.

In times when teenagers are pressured to grow up and look beyond their actual adolescent glory, God Bless the Child that's Got Her Own taps into the camgirl culture, in an attempt to explore self-discovery through exploitation and exposure in the digital age.
