Dear Younger Me

Dear Younger MeHave you ever wished you could go back in time and change something? Was there a specific moment in your life where you had the opportunity to do something great but never acted on it? Do you dream about that one special moment that passed you by because you were too busy worrying about what could go wrong?

If you answered yes to any of these questions then you may see the merit in what we and the Avon Maitland District School Board are doing with a new series we call ‘Dear Younger Me’.

To launch the series, we recently paid a visit to some of our secondary schools and asked students one question:

If you had a piece of advice or an encouraging word for your younger self, knowing what you know now, what would it be?

Now, we’d like to hear from you … students, adults, senior citizens.

What would you say to your younger self if you could?

We invite you to send us a 60-second video or video link via email to, tweet us your thoughts @found4education or share with us on

We and your younger self look forward to hearing from you!
