During a Q&A session, one student inquired about how women can be safe and responsible while using social media. Fanning emphasized the importance of remembering that social media only presents a superficial version of someone’s life and cautioned against comparing oneself to others. When asked what advice she would give her younger self, Jolie advised not to push oneself so hard that they forget to enjoy life and to hold onto the belief that they deserve happiness and freedom, eliminating any obstacles that prevent them from achieving those goals.

According to Jolie, it’s important to keep faith that you deserve joy and independence. If anything or anyone is hindering you from achieving it, it’s best to remove them from your life without any delay.
