Note: VidCon's amazingness and craziness made it tough to catch people who could do participate in a spur-of-the-moment interview, and we're so grateful to everyone who participated. We plan to make a similar video in the future with a greater diversity of people. Thank you so much to everyone who helped out. More to come!

Mitchell: The one thing I wish I knew when I was younger is that taking risks um, was the key to experiencing life. And that also failure, you shouldn't be scared of failing, because that's how you learn most of the things you learn in life. And it helps you learn about yourself more than almost succeeding. You can't really understand yourself by just always winning, um like experiencing both ends of life is key to being happy in it.

Henry: I wish I'd known that it's harder to like actually meet new people after like being being in a place like a college where you had automatic like friends from classes and sports teams and stuff. Um, and that I should just try to seek out places where people actually meet each other and do things together. I play music, so doing music or going out and skiing with people, that sort of thing. Actually find people who have similar interests.

Rafi: If you're getting started out in the entertainment industry, you do not want to just pick necessarily YouTube or online video, and then also not being involved in traditional media. You should be working in both mediums, because you don't know where you're gonna get your job, you don't know where you're gonna be successful, you never know who's going to help you get to that next level, the connections you're going to be making, and  I think you're limiting yourself if you only do one or the other. 

Gregory: The one thing I wish I knew when I was younger was the context that life is short, and that we should all be doing things that make us happy, and that took my a lot longer than I had anticipated to figure it.

Emma: And so that is our official catchphrase.. What do you guys think?
