Solange Knowles is establishing herself as an icon in her own right — both through her music and her message. She wrote a raw, honest letter to her younger self in Teen Vogue’s new music issue that anyone can draw strength from.

“You are searching. Seeking in every corner and pocket of the world for who you are. Take your time, baby girl. There’s no rush to get there. You will sow each of these chapters in the land that you become. You will see bits and pieces of them scattered into the skin you grow into. You don’t have to figure everything out now. Time will reveal itself. I promise you.”
