Off-Trail Learning

Maya Landers ( is a 22-year-old lifelong unschooler from Austin, Texas, who always thought she would go to college to study English. Yet at 17 she opted to take a gap year… followed by another gap year… which turned into another gap year…. and yet another! We discuss Maya’s decision-making process regarding college, how she spent her gap years (doing a combination of writing, volunteering, working, and teaching English in China), how she built community, how she made it all work financially. We also touch on her plans for the future and her advice for other young adults considering a similar trajectory.
