Now, I don't know if you like children or not, but we were once one of them. Some of them are cute and annoying, cute and naughty, cute and smart. It's always the combo of cute and other trait. =P One word to describe them - full of potentials. Opps, that's more than one!
Anyway, I want to share this video I watched last night. It's pretty old - 23rd April 2010 if I'm not wrong. This girl, Adora Svitak is just inspirational and as one who is no longer a child/kid/boy physically (hey, I may be young at heart, who knows? =P) I think I have learned one great lesson from her talk (I believe she has more than just one thing to share with us adults) - don't underestimate them just because they are young and new to the world. We should learn from them, as much as they learn from us to be better persons, shaping a better future.
And yeah, I agree with her - "when expectations are low, trust me we will sink to them". I recommend this video to you readers. Still, for a 12 years old to be giving talk like this in front of I don't know - many prestigious academicians, intellectuals, brilliant Uni students - it is just impressive.
