In AWTT's fifth short video on "Speaking Truth to Youth," educator John Hunter and his former student Choetsow Tenzin - currently a Harvard undergrad- team up to share with youth what they've learned about becoming more engaged. 

Hunter emphasizes self-reflection, collective wisdom, and compassion as forces that ground him in his pursuit of a more peaceful world. 

Tenzin talks about the importance of finding allies and mentors, not over-estimating or under-estimating your own capacity and pushing beyond complacency.
