A favor! Does this sentence make sense? "Don't be afraid of making mistakes to try new things." If not, tell me how it's wrong. Thank you.?

It could be improved. I am understanding it's meaning- "Don't be afraid of making mistakes; try new things" or "Don't be afraid of making mistakes when you try new things" or "Don't be afraid of making mistakes, and try new things"

"Don't be afraid of making mistakes when trying new things". OR, but much less usual, "... of making mistakes in trying new things". Definitely not the way you have used. Is your teacher not a native speaker of British or American English?
