Warning: This article contains spoilers for the “Enola Holmes” movie recently released on Netflix

Our lives has been shattered with change ever since the first quarter of 2020. Up until now, where we are still dealing with a lot of things, be it COVID-19, unemployment, online classes, self-doubt, boomers, and the list goes on, of course.

With all the negativity and bad vibes brought upon us this year, there is one good thing that happened recently, that is the release of the Enola Holmes on Netflix. 

NGL, Enola, with all her personality, beliefs, and how she does things, is the perfect energy to channel this 2020.

Who is Enola?

She loves riding her bike even though she continuously falls off, but mind you, she comes back up and continues to try after every fall and she doesn’t allow her detractors affect and hurt her feelings instead she takes every opportunity to get back at them.


Aside from being a one-of-a-kind child, Enola does not just teach us how not to be afraid of continuously trying after every downfall, and own who you are. She is the very image of a person breaking barriers, not just for women, but for every person wanting to take a stand for themselves and for everything that is happening around them.

From refusing to be the woman society dictates her to be, because gender roles *eye roll*, to standing up against patriarchy and just simply all the injustice and negativity around her, Enola never runs out of motivation to acknowledge these things and make a way for the better.

Enola (whose name, we are so often informed, is “alone” written backward) resonates the message that, “You are not alone,” she becomes a sign of unity for those people or countries going through difficult situations. As she said,
