Nyeeam Hudson, a.k.a. KingNahh, has one goal in mind: inspire kids to be great. The 10-year-old is one of the youngest motivational speakers carrying out his agenda of empowerment and many adults are taking note of his advice.
In a recent Instagram post, KingNahh admonished kids to focus more on knowledge and less on possessions. The tween was inspired to speak on the matter after being bullied for wearing FILA sneakers. It’s not about what I have on my feet, it’s about what I have inside my head,” Hudson shared in the video. “No matter what I’m wearing, what I have on it’s about my information, the knowledgeable things in life. These sneakers are not even going to fit you 20 years from now.”
Many Instagram subscribers are taking KingNahh’s advice to heart. “You are the image of what our #youngblackyouth should aspire to be personified,” one fan complimented. “You should teach a class that is mandatory for all my young Brothers to attend,” another said.
KingNahh wouldn’t mind accepting speaking engagements as he certainly has a lot of meaningful things to say. “Everyone has a greatness within,” he shared with Huffington Post. “Self-esteem and confidence are everything! If children don’t have the right motivation they completely shut down – and once a child shuts down, it’s really hard to make them believe that they can achieve anything.”
Nyeeam Hudson hopes to raise at least $10,000 for a book and website that will motivate kids to do great things. Learn more about his goals here.
