Elias Phoenix: The magic that ensues when a child finds their true sense of self
"Hey, just be the way you are! Don't put on any hair gel"
The world is made up of many big personalities, but one of my all time favourites is Elias Phoenix. Elias is not like any other child I know. First up, he's a child prodigy - and absolute star on the piano! However, what I admire most about Elias is his sense of self. He is so beautifully aware of who he is and is a true testament of how insanely powerful it can be when you encourage children to embrace their individuality.
This video of him appearing on the Ellen Show will have you tearing up with laughter as his character shines through. But be prepared for the absolute awe you will feel when you watch his little hands glide over the piano while playing an extremely difficult piece.
Elias is a star on so many levels, and if you take anything away from this short clip, let it be the power of embracing your true self!
