The Two Jess(es) sit down for a very enjoyable 30 minutes to talk with Jane Andraka, the energetic mother to two Wonder Kids. Jane's youngest son, Jack, discovered an early detection test for pancreatic cancer, and is currently using his talents and skills to help in the war against COVID-19. He is an author and professional speaker, as well as the winner of many prestigious awards.
In this conversation, Jane offers a perspective shift in the midst of an educational crisis, promoting the idea that we are actually in the middle of an incredible opportunity to really get to know our kids and what they are passionate about. She encourages parents to pay attention, and serves as a reminder that we are indeed responsible for our children's education, or at least to supplement it. While this could cause a wave of discomfort, she is also endearing in her parenting approach as she encourages parents, mentors, guardians, to savor even the harder moments with their young ones.
