Reach Cyber Charter School sophomore Ja’Nya Coleman loves to learn. And she’s discovered that learning happens everywhere — through school, through mentors, through WQED Film Academy, and even when she’s watching TV soap operas.

In the latest episode of PublicSource’s podcast series “From the Source,” Coleman talks with host Jourdan Hicks about the paths that can lead to career success and how finding a creative community can help teens build confidence.

“Ja’Nya hopes that by sharing her story, her peers will be inspired to step out of their comfort zone and decide to try new things, learn new skills, new hobbies and embrace the things that make them them. Be curious, be courageous, and unafraid of your own potential,” Hicks says. “Ja’Nya’s golden rule? Follow the opportunities.”
