"I was exactly the same, and if I could go back and change my 20-year-old self, I wouldn't change a thing. It's that 20-year-old Deepika's decisions that have made me who I am today!"
"Achingly vulnerable and emotionally wise. Also, I was very optimistic—I had an undying spirit about me, this sense that there was always a silver lining."
"I was shy and quiet, until I had a few drinks, then I would become the storyteller and the performer."
"I was quite confident, actually. I was also really hard- working (but terribly insecure) and had a very Mean Girls- esque sense of humour!"
"Shy and quiet, but with fatter cheeks, and the propensity to get on a table and dance till sunrise."
"I was free-spirited, andIhadno fear. The sky was the limit. I was bartending and paying for college on my own, and living life to the fullest."
