The Gift of Teaching with Actor/Producer Natalie Mitchell By Cynthia Brian

Teens talk and the world listens every Tuesday NOON PT on the Voice America Kids Network. Produced by StarStyle® Productions, LLC and Cynthia Brian, these young adults know how to rock and express their unique views. Join the fun!

“Those who know, do. Those that understand, teach.”
― Aristotle

Teachers are some of the greatest people with whom we will ever cross paths. Hosts Zahra Hasanian and Brigitte Jia interview triple threat actor, producer, and coach, Natalie Mitchell about her evolution from working as a child actor in the movie Jack with Robin Williams to becoming an acting coach, producer, director, and founder of her own production company, Emergence Films.  Her insights on teaching and the entertainment industry are grounded in values and empowerment.

Report of Music Magic, Seo Young Kim discusses how music fits as a unique type of strategy for teaching because it’s collaborative, offering the opportunity to express opinions and relate to the listener. First time reporter of Ode to Literature, Caitlin Sim shares a very point that not every book that teaches is a philosophical or a political book. Many fiction novels are more frequently read than “non-fiction” books. Several book are discussed including Mitch Albom’s book, Tuesdays with Morrie.
When one becomes a teacher, one learns from the students. The secret is to find a way to teach as a peer and become an equal.

How to live in the Communications Age: a conversation with Prof. Gonzalo Aguerrevere By Luis Vicente Garcia

We live in challenging and fast changing times in which the evolution of technology, the digital times and the knowledge era have transformed the way we behave, we do business, learn and communicate. This is why it is very important to understand what today has been called the ‘Communications Era’.

This is part of the important issues we deal with today; but it requires that we learn, adapt and understand. The communications era is only a small part and fraction of what has been called the era of knowledge or today, the fourth industrial revolution. How do we create energy, ideas and develop the potential of our societies? How do we improve our education systems in order to grow in different and better ways?

This is the subject of this interesting show; join me as I embark in this knowledge and learning based conversation with Professor Gonzalo Aguerrevere.

Teaching Peace

Posted by Editor on


Cheryl Esposito welcomes Dr. Lyly Rojas, a university professor, international humanitarian, and co-founder of the European Institute of Collaborative Law. She specializes in the teaching the culture of Peace (inner and outer), Corporate Social Responsibility, and Multicultural Intelligence.

Lyly was born in Nicaragua, a country of conflict with a long history of turmoil, and ultimately her family had to flee because of their political beliefs. “I was born into a political family and we were ‘living’ international issues. I was born into a family where people were always making choices about staying and leaving and asking the questions: Where is home? Is it time to go or stay?”

She has worked with and consulted to the United Nations; as an advisor to the Vatican in the trafficking of human beings; in war zones training diplomats, human rights workers, the military, and tortured women and children. The unifying theme for her work: compassion and dignity for self and others. Lyly says that we cannot begin to help others heal if we cannot heal ourselves. “How can you teach peace if you are not peaceful within yourself?”

She helps individuals, families, groups, corporations, and entire nations to connect with their inherent peace making capacities, teaching conflict resolution, non-violent communication, corporate social responsibility, and multicultural consultancy skills. Her current book project is titled: From Inner Peace to Outer Peace and All the Pieces In Between.

Join Cheryl Esposito and Dr. Lyly Rojas to explore inner peace as the key to world peace.
