Voices Around Town

If you could travel back in time, what advice would you give yourself?

Asked in downtown Mountain View. Photos and interviews by Kayla Layaoen.

"I would tell myself to go back to school, instead of being home-schooled."

Chris Hackmann, Sunnyvale

"I would tell past me to be more confident in my choices and in myself. I would say not to let people push me around. I should've started creating those good character traits earlier."

Jasmine Salik, Los Altos

"I would try harder not to procrastinate."

Javier Suarez, Palo Alto

"I wish that I had listened to myself and drowned out the external noise. Above all, believe in the person that you have become. You will always be your own biggest supporter."

Megan Oza, Cupertino

"I know I wouldn't listen to myself anyway."

Monica Salazar, Mountain View
