Teens have straight, important questions, but few adults ever give straight answers… until now. Andrew and Isabela are teaming up to share wisdom and demystify the world for teens in this 12-part series.
Teens have straight, important questions, but few adults ever give straight answers, in many cases because they don’t want to admit that they don’t know. The truth is that straight answers do exist — there ARE ways to solve your problems. So I’ve created a panel of my wisest, kindest friends to demystify the big questions, and to make the complexities of the world legible to teenagers who feel lost.
In this entry, we will address questions such as:
– How do I deal with impossibly high standards that just make me feel bad for failing to meet them?
– How do I balance “enjoying my youth” and “building for the future”?
– I feel like my generation is responsible for saving the world, but that’s so unfair!
– How do I actually chart a path from school to getting a job? I’m scared of becoming a NEET.
NOTE: This series is for teens only. While well-meaning parents, teachers, siblings, etc. may also worry about these questions, these salons are meant as a space where teens can speak freely and openly.
