Everyone needs a helping hand sometimes…
Whether you’re looking to organise your life, want to make a difference in society, heading off to university or just heading to Summer in the City, we all need some sage advice from time to time. Who better to offer such advice? YouTubers, of course! In 2014, we shared with you five videos filled with crucial advice we all need to hear and we’re doing it again, nearly five years on.
Enjoy this week’s Five More of the Best: Advice videos!
dear younger me | doddlevloggle
We’re kicking things off with a letter dodie wrote to her younger self a few years ago, titled dear younger me. If you could speak with your past self, what would you tell them and what would you want them to know?
A lot of what dodie touches on in this video are things we could all do with keeping in mind, such as loving our bodies and not caring so much about what people think of us or how we look. Oh, and trying to impress that person who’s shown no interest in us? Don’t bother, as there’s someone out there who’ll give us the attention we deserve. dodie’s learnt a lot over the past few years and she’s sharing it not only with herself, but with all those who watch her videos, and we can’t thank her enough!
THINGS I WISH I KNEW BEFORE UNIVERSITY | UNI VLOG 16 | Nayf
One of the biggest challenges a lot of us will face is moving away from home to go to university. While our schools, parents and teachers can help, there’s little better than advice from those that live it everyday. Enter Nayf Divak’s channel.
We’ve chosen his video about the things he wish he’d known before he went to university, but he’s got tons of videos covering everything from Freshers Week and studying, to cooking for yourself. They’re a great resource for those just starting at uni, or even if you’re an older student looking to get the most out of the time you’ve got left there.
