My main piece of advice is to find yourself! Know who you truly are! When you do that, you’ll find a profession that fits the true you!

What do you wish you had known before graduating and entering the "real world"?

I wish I would have known more about who I was. I needed to know who I was before I left. Keep learning about yourself and loving yourself!
