Emily Esfahani Smith-The Power of Meaning!

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyle® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!

“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”

—F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

Katie Choo and Brigitte Jia discuss how the meaning of “the end of school “changes as one grows older as well as summer plans, volunteering, road trips, and what the next year will be. Inspirational guest author, Emily Esfahani Smith encourages cultivating purpose throughout one’s life by staying grounded and focused on strengths and talents. In a culture obsessed with happiness, her book, The Power of Meaning, points the way toward a richer, more satisfying life striking a profound chord in anyone seeking a life that matters.  Joven Hundal debates whether a long summer break is the best course for parents, teachers, and students as research has shown that a full month of math prowess is lost.  A rigorous year round school with one month interval breaks may be more productive for the student. Whatever you do this summer, get off the couch, turn off the gadgets, go outside, pick up a book, take a class, go to a seminar, relax and enjoy summer but do keep your mind on your education.
