This is the continuation of Matt's awesome story about what is possible when a young person embraces personal responsibility and self-directed, real-world education.

In today's conversation, Matt continues to discuss his health research and how the Bosnia trip was a catalyst for more learning.

Background:
In the midst of my growing frustration about things like #MarchForOurLives and the misleading of young people, I received relief and some hope in the form of an email.

It opened: "I am 18 and have been watching your show for over a year. It has helped me tremendously in my process of deciding not to attend college, starting on my own business, and becoming financially independent at age 18.

If you happen to have some time ever, I would really love to chat with you and share my story to hear your feedback. I love your community's open-mindedness and focus on logic and considering facts and argument; this is critical and totally lacking."

This was written by Matt Maruca, who began his self-education journey at age 13. In middle school Matt began seeking answers to a variety of chronic ailments, discovered the joys of self-directed learning and never looked back. After realizing and harnessing his efficacy and abilities, he found school to be an almost intolerable obstacle to his education. The story only gets more interesting from there.
