Wise beyond her years, Bindi captioned her photo with a favorite quote from S. Westerfeld: “To be beautiful means to be yourself. You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself … What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.”

The Australian teen is happy being just that, a teen. She isn’t in any rush to grow up too fast. She told People earlier this year, she "want(s) to encourage other young girls not to grow up too soon."

She also told News Corp Australia: "I'm a big advocate for young girls dressing their age. I mean, for me, I look around at a lot of young girls that are my age and they're always trying to dress older. Whether it's wearing revealing clothes or hardly wearing any clothes at all, I feel really bad for them. It kind of has the opposite effect in some ways - it kind of does the opposite where it makes you look younger and like you’re trying too hard.”

Steve’s death was sudden and tragic. A stingray barb killed him in September 2006 while he was shooting footage on the ocean reef in Australia.
