Meet our Keynote Speakers: Introducing Meg Barraca!

1. Introduce yourself! What’s your name, where are you from, and what do you do?

I’m Meg and I’m a second-year college student from the Philippines! My family started homeschooling in the 4th grade, and while my siblings are still homeschooling to this day, I transferred after four years due to receiving a scholarship to an international school. Currently I am a Music Business Management student- I love singing and performing, and I plan to work in the music industry in the future! I also like to give back to the homeschooling community by mentoring the youth through speaking engagements. I talk about things like creative note taking, the importance of leadership, and how to maximize learning for homeschoolers here in the Philippines.

 2. What makes you happiest? 

Eating good food, drinking milk tea, or spending quality time with the people I love- or all three at the same time

3. What’s your pet peeve? 


 Probably the sound of nails on leather! Also when people add more dirty dishes to the sink when I’m almost done washing them.

 4. What is your proudest achievement? 

 Pushing through the IB (International Baccalaureate) program and getting the IB diploma! It’s a 2-year intensive curriculum taken in high school- I’m most proud of it because the subjects were quite challenging and it brought me a lot of stress, but I got through it in the end

 5. What will you be speaking about, and why do you think it’s important for homeschoolers to hear?

I’ll be talking about how homeschoolers can use their gifts and talents to benefit their community! I think one of the biggest benefits of homeschooling is the advantage of time- time to spend to pursue subjects and activities you’re passionate about. I was definitely able to know more about myself through homeschooling and used my time to build a lot of skills that ended up benefiting me in the long run. I hope to encourage and inspire others through my talk that regardless of everyone’s different interests, talents, and strengths, there is a way for anyone to use them to benefit their community. I’m excited to share how you can use them, not only to improve yourself and your talents, but also to be a blessing to the people around you!
