Letter to My Ten-year Old Self

(For every student that worries too much)

            Dear You Little Munchkin,

You are headed for great things, kid. Not the fantastical, unrealistic greatness of fame andletter fortune and an unlimited supply of Lindt truffles- I mean the kind of great things where you discover who you are, who you’ll never be, and who the world wants you to be. They’re the kind of great things that everyone will try to stop you from getting, but you have to promise me that you’ll do anything to keep reaching. And hey, you’re going to hear “Be Yourself” and “Never Give Up” so many times that you’ll wonder if everyone is reading off of some pre-planned Joel Osteen script. But you have to believe in the clichés, love yourself so much that it’s almost shameful, and never lose faith in humanity. That’s all I’ve got for you now, but just remember that you’ll be fine. You’ll be just fine.

– Milkah K
