  1. What incredible poise this young lady exhibits. She makes a good point that there’s no stopping you if you forget about the blocks and focus instead on the goal. Education and society needs to give kids these opportunities. More about her at: http://www.adorasvitak.com/

  2. Thanks for posting this video. I think we need to really ‘lend an ear’ to what she is saying, not just in the video, but through the dozens of students who show signs of leadership every day and we don’t have time to listen. Policy is great, but in the changing times, what we need really is to go way deeper than ‘going by the book’.
