Dear Younger Me,

Dear younger me,

Give yourself grace, as you will go far. Those fears and concerns expressed by your 8th grade teacher—statement indicating you aren’t smart enough to go to university—couldn’t be further from the truth. I write this letter to you today, from The Medium‘s office in the University of Toronto’s student centre.

You are worthy, you are enough, and you will go far.

I love you and I’m proud of you.
