What’s your best advice for your younger self?

The best advice I would give my younger self would be to live authentically, never be scared to let your personality shine. I would tell her to be bold, and to express herself with originality and enthusiasm. I would tell my younger self that she is the creator of her reality, the circumstances that one is born into does not define who they are. I would tell her to dream big, and never lose hope in her future because she’ll never know just how bright it can get.
