Q&A a Day for Writers: … What makes you great tomorrow

Todayʻs topic is a really good one and is really important for kids today and tomorrow to know.

What does this quote from James Victore mean to you, “the things that make you weird as a kid will make you great tomorrow.”

James Victore is a graphic designer and encourages all to create art that is unique to their selves even if it is a little different.

This quote is a really good one. I was one of those weird kids growing up, you know? I had the crazy curly hair and liked a purple/orange color combination. I loved to read and would sit for hours with my head in the books. Iʻm sure I will be at my utmost potential later in life, but I can feel myself making the moves to getting there.

Overall, I see this quote to mean that each kid who has a quirk that is out of the norm or who chooses to eat their food a different way could probably be the next great five star chef or master pastry chef. The kid that spends a lot of time playing with and taking apart electronics will probably build the next rocket ship for space travel. The kid who sells food on your neighborhood street could possibly end up being a big entrepreneur powerhouse of your community. The possibilities are endless!

We should never forget to empower these children to be the best that they can be. There is no wrong in being a child, and all the little quirks and differences make them even more special when they grow up. Children never stop dreaming and are so full of life. We should uplift them.

Take what you are and move forward.
