Dear Favour,

I am writing to you from the future, where Celia Stars has become one of the most successful and impactful platforms in Africa. Looking back on the early days of this project, I am filled with admiration for the hard work, dedication, and courage you displayed.

As you reflect on the journey that brought you here, I want to remind you of a powerful message from Mark Zuckerberg's speech at Harvard University. He spoke about the freedom to fail, a message that deeply resonates with us at Celia. We believe in taking risks, pushing boundaries, and dreaming big, and that philosophy is embodied in Celia Stars.

Zuckerberg's speech emphasized that the freedom to fail is not just about being able to try new things and take risks without fear of consequences, but also about the importance of learning from those failures and using them as opportunities to grow and improve. He spoke about how failure can be an important teacher, providing valuable feedback and helping us to build resilience and perseverance.

I want you to know that as you build and grow Celia Stars, you will encounter challenges, setbacks, and even failures. But I also want you to know that each of these experiences will be an opportunity for you to learn and grow. I have seen firsthand how the mistakes and failures you made in the early days of this project have helped you to refine your vision, improve your strategies, and build a stronger and more resilient team.

The fact that you have attracted over 50 members to Celia Stars in the first 24 hours is a testament to the power of this philosophy. It shows that you are not afraid to take risks, to push boundaries, and to dream big. And it shows that you are willing to learn from any failures along the way and to use them to make Celia Stars even better.

As your future self, I want to encourage you to keep Zuckerberg's message in mind as you continue to build and grow Celia Stars. Remember that failure is not something to be feared, but rather an opportunity for growth and improvement. Embrace the challenges and setbacks that come your way, learn from them, and use that knowledge to build an even better and more impactful platform.

I am incredibly proud of what you have accomplished so far, and I can't wait to see where this journey takes you next.

Sincerely, Favour @ 23
