As Debby Ryan grows up, she just keeps getting wiser and learning more about the kind of person she wants to be. She freely shares wonderful advice with her fans when they ask, which means we're constantly learning right along with her. So when TWIST caught up with her at the recent Celebrity Experience red carpet event, we asked her what she would say if she could write a letter right now at this moment in her life and deliver it to her younger self – at a time when she needed to hear it.
"It would just be like, 'Dear Debby, I don’t know why you’re freaking out, I promise it’s not a big of deal as you think it is. Instead of being like people who want you to be or who you think people are requiring or need you to be, just do the thing you’re doing and if that isn’t good for people, then those people aren’t worth you anyway'," Debby tells us exclusively, sharing that she wishes she could remind her younger self to just calm down.
We're sure Past Debby would love to hear these words from Future Debby!
