    Beautiful mess: other’s advice

    The best advice that you could give someone is to listen to others and then pick and choose from them what they say to define what is important to you. You should never stop evolving your own advice and never stop listening to what others have to say. Here, several Ames High students share their wisdom with you. Take it as you will.

    “Find your own personality” -Conor Johnson, Senior

    “Look up from your phone sometime, the best things are in front of you.” -Derek Thilges, Junior

    “Look outside your friend group.” -Melanie Long, Senior
