Fifteen-year-old Amelia Penney-Crocker returns to the show to continue chatting about her dedication to make our planet a better place for all. Back in episode 3, Amelia shared some of the 53 letters she wrote to Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau. Her letters which cover the climate crisis, demand the government take immediate action. Though she and Anitha discussed some of the letters, there was still so much left to talk about.
Anitha is grateful to Amelia for generously coming back to continue this important conversation. In this episode, Amelia talks about why climate change affects certain populations more than others.
An incredible episode with an incredible young woman.

Fifteen-year-old Jeffrey Wall has already accomplished so much—A black belt in Karate and inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
Jeffrey talks to Anitha about how he got into karate and what inspired him to share his passion for martial arts with residents of nursing homes. He teaches them the fun and importance of staying fit.
The global pandemic has brought hardship to many, including those in long-term care facilities. Jeffrey hopes his act of kindness helps alleviate some of that stress, as he continues to find innovative ways to connect with residents of nursing homes during these difficult times.
As a thank you to Jeffrey for sharing his story, Anitha donated to Polished Girlz, a non-profit organization that brings ‘sparkle to the lives of girls with special needs or frequent hospitalizations by bringing the trendiest nail art parties to them’
Polished Girlz was created by Jeffrey’s sister, Alanna. Clearly, kindness runs in this family.
