“To be beautiful means to be yourself,” Irwin captioned the picture. “You don’t need to be accepted by others. You need to accept yourself.”

Irwin added one of her favorite quotes as well.

“‘What you do, the way you think, makes you beautiful.’ – S. Westerfeld,” the post read.

In 2006 at the age of 8, Irwin tragically lost her father, but she nonetheless has grown up to have a good head on her shoulders.

Last year, Irwin put out a call for young women to not grow up too fast.

“I'm a big advocate for young girls dressing their age,” Irwin told News Corp Australia at the time. “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.”

The “Return to Nim’s Island” star told People magazine earlier this year her dad said she could not date until she was 40.

“Maybe I'll just focus on my studies,” Irwin told the magazine. “It's a long way off.”

Her mother Terri Irwin shared her pride for her daughter in the interview too.

“I'm very proud of Bindi and proud of her life choices,” Terri Irwin said. “I think she has always taken very seriously the opportunity to be a role model. She'd never say that, but she wants to make a difference.”

For now, Irwin carries on her father’s legacy as she works for Generation Nature as an ambassador in a partnership with SeaWorld to inspire children to explore nature.

“Wildlife work is in my blood,” Irwin said “I'm not going to wake up one day and decide that I'm done trying to save the world! It's who I am.”
