In the new book, If I'd Only Known Then: Women in Their 20s and 30s Write Letters to Their Younger Selves, former Seventeen editor and current Alpha Kitty Atoosa Rubenstein writes, "I know you don't believe me, just like you don't believe Mom when she tells you that you are beautiful. But I'll say it anyway: One day you will lead a very fancy life. Yes! A girl like you whose parents work multiple jobs and barely make ends meet can grow up to live in a beautiful corner apartment in Manhattan overlooking the water, have weekend houses in the Hamptons and Miami, attend fashion shows in Europe and be photographed for magazines."
