A while back I wrote about some amazing Worthington students in a blog I titled Worthington Has Amazing Kids….Seriously Amazing Kids. We do have amazing kids and they are all different. One of those totally amazing students is a 16-year-old who attends the Linworth Alternative School. If you follow pop-culture you may already know about her. I, on the other hand, just learned about Candice Carrizales.
Candice is on her way to being famous. She appears weekly on Rainn Wilson’s You Tube channel Soul Pancake. Most of you know that Rainn Wilson is the actor behind the iconic character Dwight Schrute from NBC’s The Office. He’s also a NY Times bestselling author and comic genius.
Candice is also a comedic genius and was picked by Rainn Wilson to film her own You Tube segments on his channel. She was flown to Los Angeles to film her spots. I don’t totally understand all of the humor, but people across the country love Candice. She’s become somewhat of a cult hero to high school and college students from coast to coast.
I’m not certain how much Worthington Schools can take credit for Candice’s genius. I am certain that we’re lucky to have students like Candice who have diverse talents and I am hopeful that as a school district we have encouraged her to follow her passions and have allowed her to develop her uniqueness.
Check Candice out on You Tube. You don’t want to be the only person in America not watching this talented 16-year-old from Worthington, Ohio.
