Zara Larsson took to Twitter to question how girls are often told to moderate their ambitions, and to not expect success.

We stan Zara Larsson. There. We said it. Especially after she spoke out to her 1.35 million Twitter followers to question why females are told not to dream big.

The 'Ruin My Life' singer wrote "Every time I get asked if I could imagine myself doing what I do 10 years ago people always get so f***ing shocked when I say yeah.

"It’s like women are supposed to say “omg no I never thought this would happened, I doubt myself sooo much and this is all a huge surprise”," continued Zara - who actually won the Swedish version of Got Talent at the age of 10.

"I could definitely see myself doing exactly this as a kid. I’ve always had big dreams and I’m not ashamed of that."

The 21-year-old Swedish singer then encouraged women and girls to dream big, and coaxed them to attempt to reach their goals.

However, some disagreed with Zara, claiming that she was "making this a woman thing", to which she said "a lot of times people think a woman is rude when she expresses her big dreams with confidence.

After a YouTuber, named Shawna, began questioning her attitude, the topic of clothing arose, which saw - for example - male tees reading with the slogan "BE A HERO", while the female alternative read as "I NEED A HERO".

Zara then swooped in to accuse the clothing as being sexist, writing "While these shirts alone are not a big problem, the message still is. Boys can be strong, brave, scientists, heroes and girls can be... a daddy’s girl."

We've said it once - we'll say it again; we stan Zara Larsson.
