If I could speak to my younger self, I would encourage her (me) to give school a little bit more effort. What small amount of extra effort would have changed a C to a B, or a B to an A? I would tell my younger self to not worry about other people and what they thought so much and to just be an authentic version of myself. Also I would encourage younger me to take steps to stand out. I was a theatre major in college, but I never tried to be the star of a play. I really don't have regrets about the past. My unique experiences brought me to the point where I am now and it's not such a bad place to be. I am healthy and happy and enjoy family life. The tiniest alteration of my past might have lead me to a different present.
