America's Young People: Smarter Than You May Think

Think kids these days are not as smart, as intelligent, as previous generations? Guess again. 

I had the sheer joy of presenting my Leadership 101: Self Mastery to a group of students and their mentors last evening (1/22/15) at Cesar Chavez School in No. Portland.

These kids are sharp, dedicated, maintain exceptional grade point averages, and already have mapped out their futures. One is headed for law, another for medicine, still another for pharmacology. And one is already proficient in computer science. He has Google in his sites. 

Thing is, these kids range in age from 13-17. They have powerful senses of humor, can dance, understand the hip hop generation, and like One Direction.

If they are any indication, America is good hands.
