One of my favorite questions to ask students of any age is, “what advice would you give yo your younger self?”
It’s the type of open ended question that empowers people get really introspective really fast. It helps people come up with their own answers, to gain clarity, to take ownership of their own growth.
In this video I am speaking with Diego, a 7th grader I work with. Brilliant kid, uber creative, outside-the-box thinker, and funny. He has a lot to share with the world! Needless to say, school is a struggle for him, and it’s really interesting to hear the advice he would give his younger self about it.
Finally, what advice would you give to YOUR younger self about life or school? Share your thoughts below.
