Pep-Talks & Younger Role Models

Maybe we all just need a Pep-Talk to spur our creative confidence.

Perhaps younger kids and teens need some heroes their own age to look up to. Kid President inspires kids all over the world with his strength and character. Most of the time our 'heroes' growing up are much older and more accomplished. I wonder if this puts creative achievement out of reach in the minds of some kids - they feel as if it is something they can build towards when they are older. If more young kids doing incredible things were publicized and shared, it would encourage other kids that 'yes, I can do this, and I can do it now!'

Resources like SoulPancake.com help spur our imagination. Their tagline is: Our brain batter of art, culture, science, philosophy, spirituality and humor is designed to open your mind, challenge your friends, and feel damn good.
