Fashion Designer Jeffrey Costello On Embracing Every Character-Building Experience

"They will shape who you become."

This letter is part of our inaugural editorial series, “Letter to Myself,” in which we asked 40 remarkable queer people to write a note to their younger selves.

Dear Jeffrey,

Your life will be full of many twists and turns through the coming years. Don’t forget to embrace each experience fully, they will shape who you become. Remember, never be afraid, smile, and live in the moment. Relish and be grateful that you like yourself for who you are and that you are not afraid to love who you love. When you least expect it, you will meet the most incredible man—your future husband—and you will both create a beautiful life together. Stay true to yourself and your beliefs and life will be amazing.



Jeffrey Costello is the co-founder of JCRT.
