Though I am still young, I would tell my even younger self to stop worrying about the future when she didn’t even know what she wanted. I knew my path in life had to do with expressing myself through *something*, and creating new stuff that people can enjoy, I just didn’t know what that was. I worried so much about not having any knowledge or any expertise that I forgot that, in order to achieve something, I had to get myself out there and start learning one way or another. The only way to grow as a person and as a professional is to put the greatest effort in what you do, whatever that is.
