Odyssey – One Teen’s 10 Year Worldschooling Journey

When Réka Kaponay was just 14 years old, she defied societal conventions, stereotypical norms and countless odds to become one of the world’s youngest published authors. This is a story that will take you on a journey from the dusty, ancient heart of Australia, to the majestic peaks of the High Andes Mountains of Peru and the equally breathless world of publishing, on a challenging journey of persistence and perseverance in the face of great adversity. It is a road that has wound its way through 45 countries on 6 continents, to the understanding of what power stories can truly wield, and just how much is possible with a little courage, a lot of determination, and the undeniable strength of family.
