We actually met him about 7 years ago when we were in Spain and Mozart was taking a Johns Hopkins University CTY online course. Finding the English books required in Spain was a challenge, I mentioned it on Twitter and like magic he came to our rescue and sent them from the UK.
He has always been on the cutting edge of tech in education, enjoys creativity and our unusual story, so asked Mozart if she would participate via Skype.
It went so well, they said, they would ask her back in person next year! We recorded the Skype session so did a Youtube video to share the experience with all.
Things have changed greatly since we started our location independent lifestyle in 2005 and took off to Europe in 2006. No smart phones then or social media, we had to start out with a huge portable satellite!
Nevertheless, tech, the internet and social media had a huge impact on our trip and her education. We never expected these changes when we left.
Mozart shared about her song You’re Not Alone that is going to be in a movie soon! She wrote it to help the cause of Human Trafficking.
Her song Ashes is also going to be in a movie, the same one she is starring in and that shoots in May and June.
She has a new fast song out called Round The world which is about to be released thanks to the help she is getting from fans on her GoFundMe ( that you are welcome to participate in!).
We didn’t know how her education would affect her, but we see now that her travels, her languages ( fluent Mandarin and Spanish) and unusual education has had a huge effect on her music and a blossoming career that is taking off early.
WORLDSCHOOL TO COLLEGE
We're about to enter a new paradigm as we try to ride 3 horses, continue travel, support Mozart in making her first album and budding acting career plus prepare for her going to Harvard or similar university as she starts 9th grade this fall.
For us, her world schooling education and our travels were the best decisions of our lives, so I hope we can inspire others to do their own version and encourage schools to find ways to be more expansive.
