In Person Schooling, Artificial Intelligence, and Healthy Cooking

Students are back in school…in person. And it’s challenging and exhausting. Ruhani Chhabra hosts a program with back-in-school teens. In Teenship, she talks about the importance of mental health, getting enough sleep, and finding something that allows you to express yourself! Ruhani has found Express Yourself! Teen Radio as her megaphone! Our guest is a high school senior, Aprille J. Xi who has written a very fascinating book, A High Schooler’s Journal on Artificial Intelligence. In the book, Aprille discusses the background behind the importance of face-to-face communication and how emotions and ethics tie into Artificial Intelligence. Our newest reporter, Rose Sarner joins the conversation with her segment Bite Share, with a goal to educate listeners

about urban food policy, nutrition, and food access in our world today. Since the pandemic she has been cooking daily for her family, sourcing fresh ingredients from the Farmer’s Market, and creating unique and delicious dishes.
