How My Hobby Changed My Life

Alcuin’s Hailey C., fifteen, loves to drink tea and read books. To Hailey, “regenerate” (the theme of this year’s TEXxKids@BC) means “to restart” or to “begin again.” Her talk was about how she regenerated her passion for reading books into opportunities in the publishing industry.  It touched on how her hobby and passion for reading has helped her overcome depression.

She hopes her talk can inspire people never to give up their passion or hobby, no matter what people say.  Very well done, Hailey!

San Francisco, here we come!

“Teenagers learn best by doing things, they learn best in teams and they learn best by doing things for real — all the opposite of what mainstream schooling actually does.
