Editor’s Note: Young people are no strangers to fear, from age-old fears such as failing or disappointing their loved ones, to fears unique to our current historical moment. We asked our reporters to think about their deepest fears and share them.
This act of sharing is meant to do two things. The naming of the fears shows us what we are working against and the sharing of fears shows us that we are not alone.
As you read our reporter’s greatest fears, think about the way that naming and sharing your fears can be useful in your own life.
