5UP: Amanda Funk on ‘Trying New Things’

The 5UP  (Five Minutes Up) program at Colorado Academy is a series of talks with the goal of featuring voices of our community in a shortened TED talk set up. Each series of talks includes a student, a representative from the faculty or staff, and a speaker from our larger community.

In this episode of 5UP, Amanda Funk CA’18, presents “Trying New Things” about her struggles as a freshman in high school, and the difference it made when she opened up to trying new things.
