Hillary Clinton, former presidential nominee and now guest editor at Teen Vogue, shared a personal column, which was published on Wednesday in the magazine’s Volume IV issue. The column took the form of a letter to her teenage self after her first semester at Wellesley College. Here are a few select quotes:

“When you first arrived on campus, you found yourself surrounded by brilliant, accomplished women. They were fluent in other languages. They had lived abroad. They had already read half the books on the syllabus. That was intimidating—so intimidating, in fact, that you called your parents and told them you didn’t belong at Wellesley after all, and you needed to come home.”

“At Wellesley and throughout your life, you’ll find yourself in plenty of rooms where you’re sure everyone is smarter than you are—and sometimes they will be.”

“Remember how Mrs. King in sixth grade used to tell you not to hide your light under a bushel basket? She was right.”

“When your fellow students at Wellesley ask you to give the graduation speech on behalf of the class of 1969, you’ll be humbled and a little terrified. Do it anyway.”
