The Internet has become a treasure trove of many things. With a cursory search one can discovery everything from the beautiful, creative and the humorous, to the vile, disturbing and even the hurtful. And while it appears many were dumbfounded Tuesday (August 2) at Instagram’s move to create Snapchat like stories, a 10 year old motivational speaker offered an insightful perspective on what truly matters in life.
In a black-and-white video that’s making the rounds online, Nyeeam Hudson known on Instagram as King Nahh, recounts a situation in which he was teased for wearing FILA sneakers to the park as opposed to the more popular shoes kids his age wears. Instead of cowering to the taunts of the other kids, Nyeem delivered a powerful message that many online have said some adults have yet to adopt.
“So I told the kid, it’s not about what I have on my feet, it’s about what I have inside my head,” the Orange NJ 10-year-old said. “No matter what I’m wearing, what I have on it’s about my information, the knowledgable things in life. These sneakers are not even going to fit you 20 years from now.”
The video racked up nearly 17,000 views from his own Instagram page before the rest of the Internet got a hold of Nyeeam’s wise words. Before ending the video, Nyeeam ask’s parents to raise children who realize their worth isn’t in the clothes they wear.
