Kelly Nicole went to school until 6th grade, when both she and her sister left for greener pastures. Her family eventually settled into unschooling and she’s now 22 and has been a professional actress for nine years. She also teaches acting and improv to kids, as well as directing children’s theatre. We have a really fun chat, diving into her family’s road to unschooling, how her passion for acting developed, what she appreciates most about her unschooling lifestyle growing up, her advice for unschooling parents just starting out on this journey, and lots more.
