The Struggle Is Real: Artist Cassandra Calin's Cartoons Perfectly Capture What It's Like to Be a Woman

The Struggle Is Real: Artist Cassandra Calin's Cartoons Perfectly Capture What It's Like to Be a Woman

Let's just say this: living in a world where there are such high expectations put on females of all ages — whether self-imposed or from societal pressures — to be "perfect" (whatever that may be), the struggle is real.

And, 21-year-old artist and self-proclaimed "lazy fairy" Cassandra Calin is proving one thing: we're all in this together.

Focusing on creating "comics inspired by [her] life, first world problems and goofy stuff in general," Calin perfectly captures some annoying things many girls and women deal with on a daily basis.

In addition to being entirely relatable, her sense of humor and talent have captured the attention of hundreds of thousands of followers.

Don't believe you will be able to relate to at least one of her creations? See for yourself.
