Almost all of us hate our life at some part of time, for different reasons. It maybe for the broken heart, a mean boss, a lost chance or maybe some other problem we ever faced. In such a situation, if we find others who are doing great, it really hurts us. At that point, we start thinking how unfair life is and how it favors others.
Well, it is not necessarily true, life is equal, it is us who are different. It is us who get to choose what we do with our lives, whether we make the best of it or the worst of it.
While we are sitting somewhere in our pajamas and watching Netflix, there are people out there who are trying hard to pursue their dreams.
Here is a list of some teenagers who are doing better in life than most of us.
Do you need a shoulder to cry on?
I too. *starts crying frantically*
Just 16 years of age and she is fast as hell. She became the youngest person ever to cover 100-meter dash in just 11 seconds. Not just this, she is also the youngest pro track athlete in the history. She also has a 10-year sponsorship deal with Asics. All this, and I consider TV shows marathons as an achievement.
He can't drive or vote, but he sure can cook. At the tender age of 11, when we crib about homework and hormonal changes, this kid was serving 18-course meal of 'progressive American cuisine' at a cost of 160 bucks per plate. Wait, there's more, this meal was served at his pop-up restaurant, Eureka.
We all want the world to be a better place, but there are only a few who try to make it one. These 3 kids are the one who actually work towards making this dream true. In 2014, these 16-year-old children won the Google Science Fair. The reason was their groundbreaking work to combat the world's food crisis. They had produced crop yields that were 74% more than typical yields by pairing nitrogen fixing bacteria with barley and oat plants.
The youngest ever Nobel prize winner, this girl is known for sheer bravery shown by her. She was shot in the head by Taliban when she was advocating for women education in the oppressive regime. She survived the shot and continues to teach and uplift women all around the world. To read about her, you can read her book, I am Malala.
This kid from Hong-Kong is the convener and founder of the student activist group, Scholarism, based in Hong-Kong. The group demanded genuine universal suffrage. He was listed as one of the TIME's most influential teens due to his role in the Hong-Kong pre-democracy movement.
Yes, we have a lot of teenage musicians, what's so special about this one? His fame started with a 6-second-video app which had millions of followers making it a success. He became famous by posting covers of songs on Vine, the video sharing application. His debut song was in top 25 of the Billboard Hot 100 and hit number one on iTunes Store just a minute after its release.
This kid will surely make you jealous. He is rich and he has got the style. Just when he was 4, we took any chance he got to wear a suit. (Barney Stinson's guidance) Wait, it's not just fascination to wear formals, this kid went on to open his own bow tie line names Mo's Bows just when he was 10. And people wear formals so they get good DP's. He has millions of dollars and also appeared in the show, Shark Tank.
She is considered to be the best teenage climber in the world and also the best female climber yet. She has set world records by her climbs in Spain, New York etc. She took and nailed challenges which most people who are twice her age failed to. Her bravery and passion is something has will make her reach the top (like, literally).
Her self-published book "The Kissing Booth" reached 19million views which eventually made her famous. Random Book House signed a three-book deal with her as well. *looks at attempts to write a novel*
