We’ve been doing a lot of reflecting about turning 21 and what that means. So what advice would team HC give their young, naïve 21-year-old selves?


Wear sunscreen! Take that overseas adventure even if it means the savings account for the house deposit takes a back seat. Buy the outrageously priced concert tickets. Do what makes you happy.   


Relax and have fun. You don’t get this time back. In 25 years you won’t remember any of the things that feel so stressful today but you will remember the fun times.


Don’t sweat the small stuff! You’re only young, and everything will work out in the end.


You will never regret going after especially the things that both excite and frighten you out of your comfort zone. You are stronger than you think and always trust your gut instinct.


Everything happens for a reason. You are doing exactly what you are meant to be doing right now. Life will show you the way and help shape who you are.
