    even though vs even if

    In the following sentence, should I place ' even though' or ' even if'? I think even though should be used here. What do you think?

    It is also an opportunity to bolster your self-esteem by showing off to everyone just how successful and happy you are now even though( or even if) you weren't while you were at school.
