The Thiel Foundation has offered $100,000.00 to be paid out over two years as a fellowship award to 20 students, ages 15 to 20 years. To be clear, that is $100K per student, and 20 students under the age of 20 years, 20 under 20. Keil Taylor Fleischbein submitted to their request for proposal by answering their two questions:

How do you want to change the world?
The following is Keil’s response transcript, and here is his YouTube video submission for the Thiel Foundation Fellowship:

Along the way, in 1969 I discovered the Sons of Champlin (the Sons) a seven piece band with drums, guitars, keyboards, trumpet, alto sax, and vibraphone. They had been together since 1967, and by 1969 the San Francisco music scene included the Fillmore and Avalon ballrooms for music performance, and as the Sons joined that music venue, they earned a reputation as a group of R&B and jazz musicians far above the caliber of the electrified folk-rockers who made up most of that scene.
Four days until Christmas… what else would be on one’s mind? Well, this moment is given to pray God‘s peaceful spirit upon everyone reading this message, a reminder to all that within this crazy world in which we live, we choose not to let the world steal our joy. Always remember, life’s happiness is a journey, not a destination.
Therefore, we must all choose to work each day like we don’t need the money; we must choose daily to love one another like we’ve never been hurt; and like never before, we must choose to dance for joy with reckless abandonment like no one else is watching.
