Can I still be a great student in the COVID era?

This is not a great time to be a teenager! A responsible teenager these days is forsaking social ties, skipping proms, spending untold hours in front of a screen…with university looming just around the corner.

I had an opportunity to meet a beautiful young lady named Yadira Castillo when she was 11 years old. I was volunteering at her class field trip. She was the sweetest little girl, but I never knew that six years later would bring an incredible achievement to her and her family: she has become the number one student in all of LAUSD! Yes, Yadira placed first at this year’s Academic Decathlon. I am so proud of her, and I’ve invited her to my radio show at KKLA. I also want her to give other students tips on how she did it. The interview is going to be her perspective of the things that she is doing which led to her great success. Hopefully, students and their parents will listen to her interview and learn or get something from her story. Tune in, especially if you have someone close to your heart who is in high school.

Listen to my interview with the number one student in Los Angeles, Yadira Castillo. Her inspirational story airs this Saturday, April 3rd, at 4:30 PM on 99.5 FM KKLA. “You Are Being Tested, Do Not Worry” is aired every Saturday at 4:30 PM and the program is broadcast on, KKLA App, iHeart Radio,,, and Alexa Smart Speaker.
