If you could go back in time, what would you share with your teenage self?

Ahead of International Women’s Day on March 8, and as Barack and Michelle Obama today launched the “Let Girls Learn” education and volunteerism platform for young women, YouTube today launched #DearMe as a global campaign initiative to inspire and empower girls everywhere to be confident and pursue their dreams.[more]

“We all know that growing up is tough. But if you could go back in time, what wisdom would you share with your teenage self? It all starts with two words. Dear Me.”

YouTube being YouTube, the “Dear Me” letter must take the form of a video (that can be turned into a GIF on a Tumblr website) and shared across social networks and, especially, with the young women (and men) in your lives.

The campaign video features YouTube stars including Michelle Phan, Hannah Hart and Lindsey Stirling.
