Publication: GOOD Magazine Art Director: Tyler Hoehne Sponsored by: GAP, Inc. “A Letter to My Younger Self” is a three-part series of deeply personal letters written by world-changing women to their younger selves at an age when they could have used a bit of advice. Part One is a letter by Naomi Ackerman, an actress, activist and founder of the Advot Project, an organization that works with at-risk youth. Her letter is about her transition from Los Angeles to Israel when she was young, and overcame the loneliness and isolation she felt during the transition to her new school. It ultimately gave her a unique ability to listen, which is a huge part of what she does as an adult. Naomi's letter may be read here: http://magazine.good.is/articles/dear-nine-year-old-me?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=feed&utm_campaign=Feed%3A+good%2Flbvp+%28GOOD+Main+RSS+Feed%29 Read Less
