What does it mean to say someone is a "good" student? Today Danielle breaks down the stereotype of the perfect student and why grades alone don’t define children. She also examines the systems and barriers that stop young girls and students of color from reaching their fullest potential.

Origin of Everything is a show about the undertold histories and cultural dialogues that make up our collective story. From the food we eat, to the trivia and fun facts we can’t seem to get out of our heads, to the social issues we can’t stop debating, everything around us has a history. Origin of Everything is here to explore it all. We like to think that no topic is too small or too challenging to get started.
