Youth on Subjects of the World – Listen in on our panel of amazing young people as they discuss current world events and important issues. They will choose one broad topic for each show, and talk about the facts, as well as, of course, their own opinions.
The panel for our twelfth episode includes Leandros Rivera, Martin Harvey-Olson, Neil Karkhanis, and Will Maguire.
The topic that they have chosen to discuss is Nuclear Weapons.
If you are able to tune in LIVE, the Youth can also answer your questions LIVE.
Leandros Rivera is 15 years old and he lives in New Jersey with his unschooling family. He has been happily homeschooled since first grade. His main interests lie in playing video games, reading, film making, philosophy, psychology, researching world religions, sketching and current events.
Martin Harvey-Olson is an unschooled kid who is all about creative expression through music. He has been following his passions for years – cosplay, art, martial arts, gymnastics, but most of all music. He has taught himself to play multiple instruments, and is working on mastering multiple musical styles and genres, although his favorite is Rock/Alternative.
Neil Karkhanis is 14 years old and attends South Jersey Sudbury School, a democratic free school where the students decide how to spend their time. He enjoys discussing politics, education, world events and nutritional science. He has been involved in community theater since the age of six. He spends a few months out of the year living in Tampa, FL and the rest in New Jersey. He’s very excited to have this platform to share views and ideas with others.
Will Maguire is a 13 year old who is home educated, and currently resides in U.K. He has traveled to over 50 countries.
Anne Boie, Producer
Anne Boie is an entrepreneur and partner in work, family and play to her husband, David Leahy. She is a dedicated unschooling mother of the four Leahy children, ages 4- 16. The Leahy family has lived in Suburban Dallas, Rural Grayson County, Texas, and several years ago after the birth of their fourth child, they decided to pursue their dream of a more exciting urban location, as close to New York City as they could manage financially. After researching several options with the help of their children, they chose Hackettstown, New Jersey, located between New York City and Philadelphia, and moved their warehouse of more than a million Lego bricks, two dogs, three cats, four children, one Nana (David’s mom) and all their belongings halfway across the country. They have been happily living there for almost 3 years now, and are always eager to meet and talk to both experienced and new unschoolers.
Anne was very excited to take on the role of co-producer of the For the Love of Learning show, as a means of exploring ideas about education from people all over the world, and to help create a better world by showing parents that there is another way, they don’t have to blindly follow the crowd when it comes to education and raising happy children.
She is even more excited to take on this new role as lead producer for Youth on Subjects of the World. This amazing group of young people will give you hope for the future of our world.
