invenire aude qui es

Hello,
Does "Inveniere aude qui es" mean "dare to know who you are" ?
I just wonder if the right sentence is then "Aude inveniere qui es" in that case, or better: "Aude inveniere qui tu es" ?
Thanks for help ...

The word order of Latin is mostly free - it doesn't matter which of those two words comes first. Also, tu is unnecessary and overly emphatic here.

Invenire has no E right before the R, and es should probably be replaced with sis here.

Perhaps Scire aude quis sis.

Quis is the interrogative pronoun, and scire means "to know". Invenire is "to find, to discover".
