Bethany, to the rescue!

Bethany, to the rescue!

You know Bethany Cosentino as the supreme badass behind the mic and guitar for the band Best Coast. She admits to being “awkward in person and shy,” which is an experience she draws upon very tenderly in today’s installment of Ask a Grown! She offers advice for your life-conundrums, including how to overcome waves of anxiety, what to do when you think your sibling is going through a really hard time, and how to stand up for yourself against a bully—especially when that bully is your mom:

“You are who you are…You aren’t going to be happy if you’re trying to be a person that your mom wants you to be,” says Bethany, who has many, many more gems up her sleeve. Take it away, Bethany!
