When you're a kid, you get asked this one particular question a lot. It really gets kind of annoying.
What do you want to be when you grow up? Now, adults are hoping for answers like "I want to be an Astronaut" or
"I want to be a Neurosurgeon". You adults and your imaginations. Kids, they are most likely to answer with
Pro Skateboarder,Surfer or Minecraft player. I asked my little brother and he said, "Seriously dude, I'm ten, I have no idea
, probably a Pro Skier, let's go get some ice cream." See, us kids are going to answer with something
we're stoked on, what we think is cool, what we have experience with and thats typically the opposite of what
adults want to hear.But if you ask a little kid, sometimes you'll get the best answer. Something so simple,
so obvious and really profound. When I grow up, I want to be happy. For me, when I grow up, I want to continue
to be happy like I am now. I'm stoked to be here at TED, I mean I've been watching TED videos for as long
as I can remember. But I never thought I'd make it on stage here so soon. I mean I just became a teenager and like
most teenage boys, I spend most of my time wondering how did my room get so messy all on its own?
Did I take a shower today? And the most perplexing of all, how do I get girls to like me? Neuroscientists say that
the teenage brain is pretty weird. Our prefrontal cortex is underdeveloped but we actually have more neurons than
adults which is why we can be so creative and impulsive and moody and get bummed out. But what bums me
out is to know that a lot of kids today are just wishing to be happy, to be healthy, to be safe, not bullied and be loved
for who they are. So it seems to me when adults say, what do you want to be when you grow up, they just
assume that you'll be automatically be happy and healthy. But maybe thats not the case. Go to school, go to college,
get a job, get married, boom then you'll be happy. Right? We don't seem to make learning how to be happy
and healthy a priority in our schools. Its separate from schools and for some kids it doesn't exist at all. But what
if we didn't make it separate? What if we based education on the study and practice of being happy and healthy?
Because thats what it is, a practice, and a simple practice at that. Education is important but why is being
happy and healthy not considered education. I just don't get it. So I've been studying the science of being happy and healthy.
It really comes down to practicing these eight things. Exercise, Diet and Nutrition, Time in Nature, Contribution
and Service to Others, Relationships, Recreation, Relaxation and Stress Management, and Religious
or Spiritual Involvement. Yes, got that one. So these eight things come from Dr. Roger Walsh. He calls them
therapeutic lifestyle changes or TLCs for short. He's a scientist that studies how to be happy and healthy. In
researching this talk, I got a chance to ask him a few questions like do you think better schools today are making
these eight TLCs a priority? His response was no surprise. It was essentially no. But he did say that many people
do try to get this kind of education outside of the traditional arena through reading or practices such as
meditation or yoga. But what I thought was his best response was that much of education is oriented, for better
or worse, towards making a living rather than making a life. In 2006, Sir Kenneth Robinson gave the most popular
TED talk of all time, Schools Kill Creativity. His message is that creativity is just as important as literacy and we should
treat it with the same status. A lot of parents watch those videos and some of those parents like mine counted
it as one of the reasons they felt confident to pull their kids from traditional schools, to try something different.
I realize that I am part of this small but growing revolution of kids who are going about their education differently.
And you know what? It freaks a lot of people out. Even though I was only nine when my parents pulled me out
of the school system, I can still remember my mom being in tears when some of her friends told her she was
crazy and it was a stupid idea. Looking back, I'm thankful she didn't cave to peer pressure and I think she is too.
So out of the 200,000,000 people that have watched Sir Ken Robinson's talk, why aren't there more kids like
me out there? Shane McConkey is my hero, I loved him because he was the worlds best skier but then one day
I realized what I really loved about Shane. He was a hacker, not a computer hacker, he hacked skiing. His creativity
and inventions made skiing what it is today and why I love to ski. A lot of people think of hackers as geeky
computer nerds who live in their parent's basement and spread computer viruses. But I don't see it that way.
Hackers are innovators. Hackers are people who challenge and change the systems to make them work differently,
to make them work better. Its just how they think, its a mindset. I'm growing up in a world that needs more people
with the hacker mindset and not just for technology. Everything is being up for being hacked, even skiing, even
education. So whether its Steve Jobs, Mark Zuckerberg or Shane McConkey, having the hacker mindset can change
the world. Healthy, happy, creativity and the hacker mindset are all a large part of my education. I call it
hackschooling. I don't use any one particular curriculum and I'm not dedicated to any one particular approach.
I hack my education. I take advantage of opportunities in my community and through a network of my friends
and family. I take advantage of opportunities to experience what I'm learning. And I'm not afraid to look for shortcuts
or hacks to get a better, faster result. Its like a remix or a mashup of learning. Its flexible, opportunistic and it never
loses sight of making happy, healthy, and creativity a priority. And it's the cool part because its a mindset
not a system. Hackschooling can be used by anyone even traditional schools. So, what does my school look like?
Well it looks like Starbucks a lot of the time. But like most kids, I study a lot of math, science, history and writing.
I didn't used to like to write because my teachers made me write about butterflies and rainbows and I wanted to write
about skiing. It was a relief when my good friend's mom started The Squaw Valley Kids Institute where I got
to write through my experiences and my interests while connecting with great speakers from around the nation
and that sparked my love of writing. I realize that once you're motivated to learn something, you can get a lot done
in a short amount of time and on your own. Starbucks is pretty great for that. Hacking physics was fun. We learned
all about Newton and Galileo and we experienced some basic physics concepts like kinetic energy through
experimenting and making mistakes. My favorite was the giant Newton's cradle that we made out of bowling balls.
No bacci balls. We experimented with a lot of other things like bacci balls and even giant jawbreakers.
Project Discovery's ropes course is awesome and slightly stressful. When you're sixty feet off the ground,
you have to learn how to handle your fears, communicate clearly and most importantly trust each other.
Community organizations play a big part in my education. A High Fives Foundations Basics Program: Being Aware and
Safe in Critical Situations, we spent a day with the Squaw Valley ski patrol to learn more about mountain
safety. Then the next day we switched to the science of snow, weather, and avalanches. But most importantly, we
learned that making bad decisions puts you and your friends at risk. Young should talk about what brings
history to life. You study a famous character in history, so you can stand on stage and perform as that character.
and answer any question about their lifetime. In this photo, you see Al Capone and Bob Marley getting grilled with
questions at the historical Piper's Opera House in Virginia City, the same stage where Harry Houdini got his
start. Time in nature is really important to me. Its calm, quiet and I get to just log out of reality. I spend one day a week
outside all day. At my Foxwalker classes, our goal is to be able to survive in the wilderness with just a knife.
We learn to listen to nature, we learn to sense our surroundings and I've gained a spiritual connection to nature
that I never knew existed. But the best part is that we get to make spears, bows and arrows, fires with just a bow
drill and survival shelters for the snowy nights when we camp out. Hanging out at The Moment Factory where they
hand make skis and design clothes has really inspired me to one day have my own business. The guys at the factory
have showed me why I need to be good at math, be creative and get good at sewing. So I got an internship at
Big Short Brand to get better at design and sewing. Between fetching lunch, scrubbing toilets and breaking
their vacuum cleaner, I'm getting to contribute to clothing design, customizing hacks and selling them. The people
who work there are happy, healthy, creative and stoked to be doing what they're doing. This is by far my favorite class.
So, this is where I'm really happy. Powder days. And its a good metaphor for my life, my education, my
hackschooling. If everyone skied this mountain like most people think of education, everyone would be skiing
the same line probably the safest and most of the powder would go untouched. I look at this and see a thousand
possibilites. Dropping the cornice , shredding the spine, looking for a tranny from cliff to cliff. Skiing to me is freedom
and so is my education. Its about being creative, doing things differently, its about community and helping each
other, its about being happy and healthy among my very best friends. So I'm starting to think I know what I want
to do when I grow up. But if you ask me what do I want to be when I grow up, I'll always know that I want to be happy.
Thank you.
