3 Things to Inspire Your Weekend: #54



Quote of the day: 

Being unique is never easy, and often, by the time culture catches up with you, there are only a few people who notice. -Henry Rollins

This 18-year-old  Cuban-American student, Dayme Delgado, who once struggled to learn the English language is now headed to MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), where she has a full-ride scholarship to study theoretical mathematics. The daughter of Cuban immigrants, Dayme was not exposed to the English language until she got to kindergarten, and spent the first three years in classes for English-language learners.She didn't understand most of the subjects, and the only thing that seemed to make sense was math-which she excelled in, and later on entered into competitions and tutored classmates and others.

According to Goodnews Network, there exists a Museum of happiness, a non profit organization with no permanent location, which plans to open the world's first Museum of happiness in September in London. After raising $36, 000 in funding, they are set to open a physical museum. On their website it states their aim is: 'Connecting and inspiring people to live more fulfilled lives.' And the team is keen to make it free to visit -assuming the museum can make enough money from memberships and general programs.

  3. I really like the gallery and looked at it on the link. I like it as a work of art in the yard and it would make a great place to work or paint

  4. I love that gallery in the back yard. I wonder if a writing cabin could be built like that?! Hmm...

  9. Thank you so much for visiting my blog

    Great inspirations for this weekend.

    Museum of happiness - with no permanent location, which plans to open the world's first Museum of happiness in September in London.
    Maybe a very good idea.

    I was in London last September.

    One of these days I'll do a post from my stay in London.

    I'm happy because you liked my photos.
    Thank you so much

    Happy weekend!

  10. It is always inspiring to see someone like Dayme grasp onto something they love like math and excel at it even through the struggles of learning a new language.

  14. Great bits! That studio is amazing! My grandfather was the groundskeeper at MIT for many years. He had plenty of stories of the super smart students there. :) I love hearing of those who overcome obstacles.

  15. Interesting post and thanks for visiting mine. At least at kindergarten learning a new language is relatively easy. For me, not speaking a word of French all my life I struggle. She obviously though has a brilliant mathematical brain, clever lady.
    Have a great weekend Diane

  16. Ms. Delgado is an inspiration and a living rebuttal to the thinking of our president. The Museum of Happiness may be a bit too hopeful but I wish them well and a long life. I like the small gallery in the back yard but I don't know in whose backyard it could be placed and be safe from destruction.

    Thanks for your comments on my new blog!

  19. It makes me happy when young women become mathematicians. We need more women in math. The field is overloaded with men.

    Love,

  20. It's wonderful that the Cuban-American student learned to speak English. I've always wanted to know another language. I can speak and understand a bit of Spanish.

    Have a lovely weekend.
