Day 61: Another tech savvy role model you MUST meet (8 year old Presley!)

Yesterday I introduced you to the Kano Kit for building your own Raspberry Pi computer.  While trying to learn more about the pros and cons to this kit,  I got to meet an 8 year old tech savvy girl who blew me away with her articulate demonstration of the Kano Kit!  

But what blew me away even more was that Presley has been posting to a vlog every day for almost two years.  She is very very articulate and  covers lots of fun topics.  I got lost checking out all the different types of video blog entries that Presley has been posting, ranging from tutorials to visits to comic con to product reviews.  

"When Presley of ActOutGames was seven years old, her parents were using many of the amazing educational resources available on YouTube as part of her home school experience. She liked to learn from folks like Hank and John Green, and also enjoyed watching daily vlog creators like CTFxC and the Shaytards or lets play channels like Chuggaaconnory. Her love of YouTube led her parents to encourage her to start her own channel to show that she can do anything she sets her mind to. As with everything else in her life, Presley jumped in with both feet and started shooting a daily vlog that has now gone on for well over a year without missing a single day. She mixes in home school lessons, an occasional how to episode, museum visits, book review and movie review segments, educational toys, cosplay, travel, Minecraft, Doctor Who, Loot Crate, and anything else that happens to be going on in her life that day."

Way to go, Presley! You're one smart young lady and a fabulous techsavvy role model.
