Kie: If you could make a 20 second phone call to yourself at any point in your life present or future, when would you call and what would you say?
Ex: Oh goodness this is a good question there are so many times I would love to call myself. I guess it would be when I make it into the FBI (I’m not sure when that will be but that is the moment I would like to call myself during). I would tell myself I was very proud and remind myself of all the people who said I couldn’t get there.

It’s all kinda overwhelming but all in all it will work out of course.
