This 18-year-old student is not just a student but has done so many wonders in such a young age. Yash Tiwari is an Author, Public Speaker, Motivator and yes a student at the same time. Imagine producing 2 wonderful books by the age of just 18 and getting recognised by various huge platforms like United Nations India and so many national-level media platforms. Yash is not just a consistent person who does great in whatever he tries his hands on but he also has a record of writing the first-ever Fictional Novel about the Covid-19 era titled “Pandemic 2020”. Yash runs an online portal called yashtiwarispeak.org where he speaks and tells about various issues and points that are crucial in terms of enlightenment of the vision of our youth. At such an early age, Yash has successfully been 4-time TedX speaker and a Josh talk speaker as well.
Let’s find out what our young champ has got to say about his mentality on how much the age really matters when you are moving ahead for success.
Bursting the myths!
When asked about achieving so much at a very young age breaking all the stereotypes about youngsters not being able to achieve their dreams, Yash said, ‘Just because you’re young, does not mean You’re Incapable Of achieving your goals right Now, Whatsoever!’
Honestly speaking, I embarked on the journey of becoming a professional writer and international youth mentor at the age of 16, two years back in 2018. Back then, I did not even for once think that just because I’m too young I cannot impact society in some way. I just took the first step towards my passion for Literature and Public Speaking, and made it my “way of life”.
And that is exactly what I, at the age of 18, am doing right now – impacting thousands of folks every day, around the world, while delivering global Talks and Sessions on platforms like TEDx, Josh, etc. At this tender age, I’ve also authored my second Novel, PANDEMIC 2020 – Rife Of The Virus, which is also World’s First Novel on Corona Virus Outbreak. How, exactly? By not, even for a split of a second, worrying about the fact that I might be too young and just focusing on my works and my aims.
About the concept of youthism and ageism:
Yash believes that if anybody tries to bring you down just by saying that you are too young for it, then a reality check should be given to them. He added ‘Look, we are not living in the 90s, okay?There was a time in past when young folks really did not get to explore the world and its ways that much – not until they were grown up and on their own feet. But the world is different now, completely.
Every other 16 years old you see is now connected with people around the world through social platforms.’
‘This also means that the knowledge-bank as well as the calibre of our Youth of today as drastically enhanced and multiplied as compared to how it was earlier. We all need to stop judging a person’s potential and passion of doing something based on how Young or how Old they are. Age really can never define your social knowledge or your creative passion. It is, afterall, just a number!’
Where should be the youth’s focus?
Well, we all know that success is the product of so many things and focus is one of the most essential element in that. On asking about focus in depth the 4 time TedX speaker said, ‘ So there’s this social, stereotypical life-structure in our society which says that by 18, you’ve got to be done with your school. By 25, you should have a well paying job. And by 30, you should be working on having a well settled family of 4, haha!’
He added ‘ Apparently, in the fast paced world of today, where the social cultures globally are changing so drastically every day, you cannot just ‘wait’ for turning 25 to get done with your colleges and depend on a job that you might get placed for.’
‘That old normal needs to be shaken up by our ambitiously talented and enthusiastic youth of today! Start working on your creative passions at a young age, while also plan on how you can turn them into, perhaps, some form of streams of profit in the long run. You need not to give up on your academic life, whatsoever! I mean, I have been writing my globally acclaimed novels and working as an International Youth Mentor all the while studying in school and college too, right?’
‘So there’s never a need to completely give up on one thing to work on the other. Just, do focus on making some benefit out of your creative passions in life as well, as young as you can, be it starting a YouTube channel, writing blogs, starting a home food-service, or whatever it might be!’
After an amazing and full of positives conversation with Yash Tiwari, we can say that we often use the dialogue “Age is just a number” for people who are turning old and doing great things but now we have a totally different perspective towards it and we can gladly say that this works both ways for elders as well as our youngsters and Yash Tiwari is one of the most amazing examples for it.
