Flicking through the papers this weekend, I came across this fabulous story within the cooking section.
In my view, it should be front page news – uplifting, encouraging children they are never too young to achieve and oozes the thought they do not need to be held back by any ‘labels’!
Omari wants to be the ‘next Gordon Ramsey without the meat or swearing’.
Home schooled because his teachers brandied Omari an ‘underachiever’ who could not do his SATS because he has Dyslexia, Omari’s interest in vegan cooking took off. He has a cook book due for release in January 2021, his own TV show ‘What’s Cooking Omari’ and his own brand of dips.
What an achiever! I hope the teachers who told Omari he was an ‘under achiever’ will realise their mistake and start seeing the individual talent within every child – which will not always be academic but just as valuable if not more so.
