Meet our HIGH SCHOOL DAY SPEAKERS :
Just keep playing | The problem of uncertainty
Anna has been homeschooling for six years. Having attended primary school for two years, she understands the pain of transitioning from a structured school environment to the more flexible alternative of homeschooling. Anna is usually averse to change, and homeschooling has forced her to endure multiple transitions. However, she has come to realize that change can lead to personal growth and healing. She doesn’t think that her secret obsession with physics and math can be kept hidden for much longer.
