A Letter To My Younger Self is a new vertical dedicated to tackling connection in an increasingly disconnected world. Celebrating human curiosity, we explore the unspoken thoughts and experiences that have helped shape the identity of those around us, by asking one simple question: “if you could write a letter to your younger self, what would you say?”.

Hindsight is a powerful thing when you come to think of it. It's a manifestation of what we've learnt and how we've grown. It shows us where we started, and it allows us to turn our attention to what our future may look like.
For some, that future may be completely unclear, but know that everything you do and give to today, will prepare you for tomorrow. Remember, to take a step forward, sometimes you have to look back - reflect on where you've come and what you've yet to discover.
It's not our goals that will unite us, but our pursuit of actually achieving them.

If you could write a letter to your younger self, would it be a handbook on survival - filled with wit and sarcasm? Or would the words illustrate how the adversity you faced later became the experience you needed to face the world?
You may not believe it, but from your story, others will learn. You've opened new doors that talk about the reality of life in a way that others may not have imagined existed.
OUR STORIES NOT ONLY SHAPE OUR IDENTITY. THEY EDUCATE THOSE WHO ARE WILLING TO LISTEN.
What would your letter say?
