One young fan is hoping to see more Disney Princesses with glasses because the lack of spectacled royals makes her feel like she’s not beautiful enough.

Nine-year-old Lowri Moore, recently penned a letter to Disney CEO Bob Iger in hopes of persuading the studio to create a new princess that is more inclusive. In her letter, Moore wrote, “I’ve grown up watching Disney princesses and I’ve always admired them and thought they were beautiful. Unfortunately none of the princesses wear glasses and that made me feel like I wasn’t beautiful enough. So I hope that you understand and please may you make a Disney princess which has glasses.”

Moore, who has worn glasses since she was just a year old, told the Metro, “When I was younger, I would take my glasses off to play princesses with my sisters, even though I really can’t see without them.”

Although Moore now feels more confident in her appearance, she explained that the reason she decided to write the letter was to help other young girls who might fell the same way she did. “I am now old enough to know that I am beautiful with glasses, but now I feel sorry for younger girls who may not realise yet,” she told the Metro, “I wanted to write the letter to make a difference, I don’t want other girls to think the way I did.”
