Little Girl Nails Moana Song

Some kids just have a presence, there’s no doubt about it. Even at a young age, they have firm opinions and big personalities, and they can’t help but stand out from the crowd. That’s certainly the case in little Sophia Urquijo’s case. The four year old recently graduated from preschool for kindergarten, and at her class’s promotion ceremony, someone had the bright and adorable idea of having the children sing “How Far I’ll Go” from the Disney movie Moana. The only problem is that Sophia LOVES Moana.

This doesn’t sound like a problem to most people, but she knows every word from “How Far I’ll Go,” and belts it out whenever and wherever she feels like it. So when her class got up in front of all the parents and teachers (which can be kind of nerve wracking for a lot of young children), Sophia did exactly that. Standing dead center of the group of four year olds, all of whom were barely mouthing the words, Sophia opened her mouth wide and sung the words as loud as she possibly could. Sophia’s mom, Michelle, absolutely loved it. “When I first saw her from the audience, I was a mixture of absolutely surprised and proud,” she said. “As the smallest and youngest one of her graduating class she had the confidence to get up there in front of an auditorium full of people and really be herself.”

Of course the video Michelle took of Sophia singing with her whole body and heart went viral once she posted it online, eventually earning more than 2 million views! We think it’s impossibly cute, and we hope Sophia never stops singing like that!

Ridiculous Signs That Prove No One Proof-Reads Anymore

Just a casual piece of advice from the internet: If you’re going to put anything in writing out in public (whether it’s on the internet or actually, you know, outside) make sure you double check it first. Seriously, look for spelling errors, think about ways it could be misconstrued, examine any images you included… just give it a once-over, okay?

Whew, now that THAT PSA is over, let’s take a look at some people who didn’t proof read their signs, and are now the laughing stock of the internet.

Take this winner. If you’re creating a sign for a high school, or any educational facility for that matter, you have to make sure you’re spelling everything correctly! The fact that this is a sign about literacy makes it all more cringe-worthy! The only redeeming possibility is that maybe Lakewood has their kids create the signs for them, and some snarky student thought he would have a laugh at the high school’s expense!

Or what about this gem? Sure that could just be a teacher pointing to the blackboard… but it doesn’t look that way. Maybe he’s giving a history lesson?

Ah… Dr. King. The first “Martian” to be awarded a PHD! It was such an accomplishment that we get a day off from school in January! … Right?

Hey, let’s give these guys a break. It’s not like they had their two spelling bee champions create the sign! They have more important things to do!

 

Seriously, schools?!? Get your act together, because this is getting embarrassing! At least they turned it into a teachable moment, right?

Finally, we leave you with this masterpiece. Let’s hope administrators have gotten better at planning since the building was created!
