In this accessible new collection, Shameless magazine editorial director, activist designer and educator Sheila Sampath has invited an incredible group of contributors, all committed to social justice work, to share letters they have written to their teen selves.

These candid, powerful and relatable letters tackle the tough process of learning how to trust and love ourselves as well as navigate our bodies, families, identities and communities. Contributors from around the globe, including Rae Spoon, Leah Lakshmi Piepzna-Samarasinha, Rozena Maart and Nina Power share how they have created their own paths—personally and politically—from verydifferent starting points.

Letters Lived reminds us that political work is a process and, although it isn't always easy, that we all have the power to define how we shape our world, and we never know exactly what that's going to look like.
