When we think about our younger years, we can firmly say that we didn't do everything right. 

What we mean is, very rarely did everything work out perfectly or in the ideal way. But that doesn't mean that we stopped and kept pining over it. Life moved on and so we had to push forth and move with it. 

It does say something though when a person is able to look back and redo a chapter of their lives to attain a better present and future. 

A woman who shared on TikTok that she went back to reset her wrongs shared that at the age of 31, she decided to go back and rewrite her matric. 

She specifically called it going back to school to rewrite her wrongs and for her that meant her 'matric'. 

Have a look at how snazzy she looks in her school uniform. 

She is definitely lucky to be able to fit into a school uniform and she certainly fits the role of student with her youthful appearance.
