Being Smart Is Cool

  • ViewsIcon 6525

If you're starting to think it's stupid to be smart, think again. No matter what you excel in, you need to be proud of who you are.

Meet Chloe. She’s one of the smartest students in her class. But when test scores were posted—with her name usually at the top—some classmates acted stupidly. They called her "teacher's pet" and "nerd." So instead of feeling happy about her successes, Chloe felt miserable.

If you've had this experience, you're not alone. You and Chloe can get through this together. Being smart is cool, and it’s up to you to embrace it.


Control your destiny

Do you want to go to a good college? Your chances get better with every "A" you earn. So instead of worrying about not fitting in with classmates, think about how great it will be to go to the college of YOUR dreams.


Anybody can get a jobbut smart people can have careers. Law, medicine, fashion, the artsall these require dedication and brains. And since you know being smart is cool, and you're heading to a top college, you're ahead of the pack.


By the way, guys do think being smart is cool. They ARE attracted to smart girls. Girls that stay in long relationships have strong personal interests and good conversation skills. Guys want interesting companionsnot arm ornaments.


Take action now

So your future looks bright, but don't give up on the present. Find a group at school or in the community that shares your interest and understands that being smart is cool. Love the French language and culture? Join the French Club. Think Bill Gates is a true guru? Join the Technology Club. Just want to hang with other smart people? Check out the local chapter of MENSA (an organization for people with high IQs). You'll have a great time meeting people and expanding your mind.


Don't feel like a weirdo for being smart. Be proud of your intelligence and grades. They'll take you places.

I love being smart but every time the teacher says i got the only A everybody looks at me and it's kind of embarassing

I really do love being smart, but it is sometimes sorta embarrassing when the teacher announces that you got the only A or whatever, and I have kinda been bullied because of it, and been called "teacher's pet" and "bossy" or "a know-it-all" but I just let those comments go over my head. Who cares?

Being smart makes me feel good. But it's embarrassing when the teacher tells the entire class you got the only A+ or something. But I've been bullied because of it.
