Ep. #15 – Twin Teen Tales Part 2

This is part two an inspiring conversation with Sophie and Livvy – high school seniors who happen to be twins. Their wisdom, creativity, awareness and knowledge about human nature seems way beyond their 18 years. They are fueled by the love and strength they find in each other, their family and the ways they strive to intentionally deepen connection in their community. Their views on technology and the ways they work to maintain mental wellness also surprised me. In short…they are remarkable beings.
