Sometimes, life can be good. You have a good day at work, you work out, eat right, and you think "I’m making the most of my life". Isn’t that the best feeling ever?
Sadly, it doesn’t last forever. If you’re like us, you might realize that there are even children out there who have accomplished more than you probably ever will. And there goes your amazing day! Do you feel like you need a reality check too? Or do you have a friend who is in need of one? Look no further. Here are seven extremely talented children who will make you feel you have miles….MILES to go:
The Pink Helmet Posse
Skateboarding is no longer a boy’s club. Just ask Bella, Relz and Ryann. These adorable little champs can give even the toughest skaters a run for their money. The best part? The 6-year-olds have kickstarted a movement for girls who skate.
You don’t need to go to a fancy B-school to be a businesswoman. Just ask Detroit’s youngest entrepreneur, Asia Newson. Also known as Super Business Girl, she started her candle-making business at the tender age of five. Now 11, she has already won major awards, been a keynote speaker at multiple events and been featured on numerous TV shows.
At the age of nine, most people can barely understand their surroundings. However, Neha Gupta made a change in the world around her at that very age. The young girl founded Empower Orphans, a global charity that has raised over $1.7 million in the last decade. Not very surprisingly, she is also a recipient of the International Children’s Peace Prize.
What’s the opposite of ‘two left feet’? Lucky Aces! The 12-year-old dancers are local sensations and a fan favorite on Ellen DeGeneres’ talk show. But that’s not all! They’ve also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the music industry.
Harmony Zhu is a piano prodigy. The little starlet has already performed at Carnegie Hall… twice. She is the youngest student at The Juilliard School, one of the most prestigious music institutes in the world. She has also been featured on multiple TV shows and publications.
Abby & Sarah
What’s better than having a twin sister? Having a twin sister who shares your aptitude and fondness for music, of course. The 10-year-old girls started singing and playing the guitar at the age of four. Today, they have over 18,000 subscribers on YouTube, and are mini-celebrities in their own right!
We’ve all played (and been addicted to) Bubble Ball more than we’d like to admit. But did you know that the game was built entirely by a 14-year-old with no coding experience? Robert, who taught himself to code at the public library, wrote over 4,000 lines of code to build his game. And he was rewarded! The app was downloaded over one million times, beating Angry Birds as the most downloaded game.
