The last 10 years have been a lot. It’s crazy to think how a whole decade has come and gone so quickly, carrying with it the weight of all the things we’ve done and memories we’ve made. For many of us, the 2010s made up most of our formative years, where we learned about the world at large and, more importantly, about ourselves. It’s almost like seeing your life flash before your eyes.
But now that we’re turning over a new leaf — literally into a new decade — it’s time to look forward. We asked 20 people — writers, artists, photographers, doctors, athletes, designers, musicians, all people who inform the voice of Young STAR — for their hopes and dreams for the 2020s, what they’re looking forward to, and what we should leave behind from the decade that’s passed.
