What’s your best advice for your younger self?

You are more than enough. It is 100% normal to make mistakes and even fail. No one goes through life without setbacks, but make sure that you don’t sit in that negative space. Give yourself grace to move forward without saddling yourself with self-doubt and insecurities. Be bold. Be fearless. Try again, even if you are scared. Mistakes and failures are a guaranteed part of life, but I promise you will rise above them and be better for it. You will use your experiences, the good and the bad, to evolve into a successful woman who loves to help others with similar struggles.
