Inside PFS Episode 4: Luke Interviews Grace
by Luke Byrnes and Grace Karkhanis

In this episode, we caught up Grace, a rare journey-person of democratic free schools. She currently splits her time between Philly Free School and Spring Valley School in Florida. We managed to sit her down for a conversation before she flew South for the winter.  PFS is the third democratic free school Grace's has attended as a student. We talk about her experiences at the different democratic free schools and her various pursuits during her time at Philly Free School. Enjoy!

We discuss her difficulties at her last school, struggles with mental health, the challenges and joys of discovering PFS, and more. Enjoy!
