Season 3, Episode 4 - The 53 Days Challenge - Meeting families from around the Globe

On this episode, Syd discusses her challenge to meet 53 families in 53 days... It didn't go quite as according to plan but she did meet and record some of her meetings.

3 Key points to take away from this episode:

➡ Being online and talking to people in real life isn't THAT much different.

➡ It's surprising to see what people look like outside of just their face from time to time because of our perception of people.

➡ Syd looks to try and spend time with every single family that comes across UK Virtual School, even if they're not sure if they'll attend yet.
