Over the past several years, I have learnt several important life lessons. Firstly, I would tell my past self to worry less. I feel like this is a piece of advice that most people can relate with. At high school, I remember worrying about my grades and my future. It is strange now, looking back and realising that everything works out in its own way and there was no need to worry.

The second valuable lesson (which I wish I knew when I was younger) would be to grab every single opportunity. Regarding social opportunities throughout education, it is vital to spend time with friends and relax occasionally during your studies. This is definitely something I wish I had known during high school and college, but I am glad that I socialised during University and this helped me in becoming a more confident person. 

To conclude, I would suggest other students follow the advice above. Additionally, I would advise anyone to surround themselves with good people who they can be themselves around. This makes life much better and more enjoyable.
