Esther Wojcicki’s three daughters have carved unique paths in their respective fields; Susan heads YouTube, Anne founded 23andMe, and Janet teaches pediatrics at UCSF. In a members-only video interview with Quartz editor in chief Kevin Delaney, Esther jokingly calls them her “guinea pigs” in understanding how kids learn.

In the second video of our members-only series in which Wojcicki offers insights we can all draw inspiration from, she breaks down how to empower people from what she’s learned as a teacher, and by running an award-winning media arts program that has graduated James Franco and other leaders in their fields.
