> Embrace and accept the brownie points you get just by being young!

+1. I was the youngest in everything I did/achieved, until one day I wasn’t. It’s natural to take the ego boost, but it’s definitely something to introspect about and not get too attached to - I’ve seen the loss of the “young prodigy” label affect some friends deeply.

+1, I felt so emotional and terrified because being young was apart of my identity. This might be too soon for OP, but I recommend distancing yourself from your age whenever you feel ready.
