Singaporean model Liv Lo also shared an image as part of the 10 year challenge and shared her personal struggle along with it. She posted that as a model she didn't like her lifestyle because it forced her to eat and look a certain way. But now after 10 years, she feels more content with her life. 

She wrote: "I used to hate myself when I modeled because it came with restrictive eating habits, body image and mental health issues. If I could tell my younger self a piece of advice it would be to “trust that everything will turn out alright, you will be alright!” Never compare yourself with others, even if it’s your dream job, because the grass is always greener on the other side #2009vs2019#10yearchallenge (sic)."

To that reckless 16 year old that has so much to learn, there's no point giving you advice - cus' you're gonna do whatever the hell you want to anyway! She was always a stubborn one - still is (emoticon). The only thing I'd say is: stop trying to grow up so fast stupid. Just cus you're tall doesn't mean your grown!! Hahaha Sneaking out to go to Attica on a school night.. obsessing over egos and boys with her priorities all over the place.. ? I dunno whether to smack the back of your head or high 5 you. You were the best and the worst. No ragretz. ? #10yearschallenge (sic)."
