The New Zealand student has already had a couple of very big ideas, which, thanks to social media, are influencing thought outside his native country. I found him accidentally in search while scoping out thought on life without a smartphone.
Turns out he is a reliable and confident voice on a wide-range of issues. And then there are those ideas.
He is the founder of They Don’t Teach You This In School, an ingenious site that helps young people learn through the experience of successful adults, through one-minute videos that answer the question:
What is the one thing they didn’t teach you in school that you wish you had known when you were younger?
The most recent video has New Zealand Prime Minister John Key weighing in on Finance and Debt lessons.
He has also co-created a social networking site for couples that saves your relationship history called Duo.
Well worth your time to tune in to this articulate young voice.
Did I mention that he is 16? You gotta support this kind of initiative!
