The video then cuts to footage of Millie walking the red carpet and signing autographs for fans, before clips of her as a child and more recent footage of her laughing and joking around on set.
Mille accompanied the video with a heartfelt message that revealed how difficult she has found fame at times. She wrote: "16 has felt like a long time coming. I feel like change needs to happen for not only this generation but the next. Our world needs kindness and support in order for us children to grow and succeed."
She added: "The last few years haven't been easy, I'll admit that. There are moments I get frustrated from the inaccuracy, inappropriate comments, sexualisation, and unnecessary insults that ultimately have resulted in pain and insecurity for me. But not ever will I be defeated. I'll continue doing what I love and spreading the message in order to make change. Let's focus on what needs changing and I hope this video informs you on the things that go on behind the scenes of the headlines and flashing lights. Don't worry I'll always find a way to smile ;) leggo 16."
