Learner Spotlight – ​Connor Amacio Matthews


LearnerSpotlight-e1504991142345.pngConnor Amacio Matthews is a fifth grader with iLEAD Exploration. He is a kid actor and YouTube host. He enjoys learning at home because it allows him to follow his acting passion. His favorite subject is math because he is good at it and it comes easy to him.

What he enjoys most about acting is being in front of the camera filming. He also enjoys eating food from craft service. He has some advice he would give other kids who would like to pursue acting, and it is for them to always be themselves and if they don’t get the job, not to worry because there is always another audition for which they can try.

In between his school work and going on auditions, Connor hosts his own YouTube show, “In the Flow with Connor Amacio,” where he takes other kids and adults on educational experiences around Los Angeles. He has featured the La Brea Tar Pits, The Petersen Auto Museum, and the Getty Center. He has also had the pleasure of interviewing many interesting guests. If you would like to enjoy a fellow learner just like you who is following his dreams,  check out his show on his YouTube channel.
