Learn how to get comfortable with the unknown and embrace failure, mistakes, and self-love. We put together 22 things to try and accomplish while you’re in your 20s. Enjoy!

Strength From Others Equals Strength In Yourself

Each and every one of us has the strength and support we need to succeed in life, we just have to find it. We may find it on our own or we may rely on others to help us enhance the untapped potential we may possess. The people who help us may come in the form of a family member, friend, teacher, or even a stranger. YHM asks New Jersey’s Massah Bassie where she finds her strength.
