A few weeks ago I was invited to give a talk about adolescence. It occurred to me that this was a great opportunity to approach the topic from a positive point of view, different from the one the media tends to use. I chose not to talk about lacks, dangerous tendencies, bullies or gangs. For once, I wanted to talk about extraordinary teenagers, kids willing to do their best to improve our word.
These are the stories I shared:
