Series 2 Episode 10: What advice would you give to your younger self?


Julia Coscolluela (she/her)
Youth Worker

So one piece of advice I give my younger self is to remember that, you know, sunshine all the time makes a desert. So I think that my younger self needed to know sad days are kind of important to have along with the good days, because they make the happy days all the more better.

Lev Lu (he/him)
Mental health worker & digital content creator

It’s okay to do what makes you feel comfortable and you don’t have to be defined by a specific label. It’s like, you don’t have to come out as a trans guy to get a short haircut, to start experimenting with different names or using he/him pronouns, for example. And also, you are not the problem. Incorrect narratives, misconceptions, really unhelpful attitudes, that is the problem. You are not the problem.

Emma White (she/her)
Health Promotion Worker

Knowing that the world is so much bigger than this space that you know, and you are still yet to meet so many great people who will shine lights on beautiful parts of yourself that you didn’t know existed.

Carly Findlay Oam (she/her)
Writer, speaker and appearance activist

Not to be afraid of being seen. Wear what you want, don’t cover up, don’t shy away, and don’t make yourself smaller.
