Many people use YouTube to find inspiration, but the Google-owned video service wants you to know that the best advice comes from yourself. That’s why the company launched the #DearMe campaign, in which the women of YouTube share words of encouragement for their younger selves in an attempt to inspire the next generation.
The campaign, which celebrates International Women’s Day, tapped YouTube stars like Grace Helbig, Michelle Phan, Felicia Day, Hannah Hart, Lindsey Stirling, IISuperWomanII, and Bunny Meyers. Each woman shared a personal message to her younger self and called on young women to listen to themselves instead of the negativity around them.
