Caroline Kennedy, Author, Attorney, and Diplomat who served as the first female U.S. Ambassador to Japan
"I wish someone had told me not to be afraid to make a mistake. I think we spend a lot of time trying to be perfect, but it’s really your mistakes that make you who you are and that lead to future success. So, it’s important to take risks, to trust yourself - things are going to work out. Older people always say that but it happens to be true. Ask your friends for help, try new things, and think about all of the things you want to look back on at the end of your life and get started on doing them as fast as you can."
