Great Minds are Young

The Greatest Source of Inspiration!

Posted on: May 27, 2011

“Never knew a child could be so inspiring…” This comment was posted by 13-year old Meera Baya’a, one of the smartest, most determined and most ambitious young ladies I’ve ever met! Meera, along with many of her classmates and schoolmates, was one of the greatest sources of inspiration for me when designing activities and projects, creating discussion topics, or even just interacting with students. When I read her comment I couldn’t help but smiling and recalling some of the most enjoyable and rich moments in class, when my students and I had some of the most interesting conversations, which, in my opinion, were much more interesting and inspiring than any lesson in the book.

Meera, there is no greater inspiration than a child! Children of all ages are pure, simple, honest, imaginative, curious, sensitive, inquisitive, free-minded, open-hearted, positive and a lot more… To me, children are a big challenge for my heart and mind; they always bring the best out of me!

I never saw it that way… I always took them as bright youngsters who’d grow up to change the world. It’s wonderful to know that someone sees children as a big inspiration and challenge in life 🙂


All the children I see are huge sources of joy in little bodies, but I never really looked at them from the perspective of being an inspiration… This will definitely change my way of thinking, not only in the future as a mother, but also now as a young pupil 🙂


children have a wild imagination in fact they can create the most ambitious and incredible things u can ever imagine. u wouldn’t imagine what they can create with such a small mind.
