I was the stereotypical nerd in high school. I loved working with technology, wanted a video editing system for my twelfth birthday, and was able to fully program a website by sixth grade (want an A in high school and middle school? Create a website and copy/paste the textbook onto it).
But I was also bullied because of my nerdiness. I’ve been shoved into showers, mocked for being introverted and smart, and shamed by girls for not being the athletic top dog. But as Wil Wheaton shares below, it does get better. Do not be ashamed for being a nerd. Maybe as a church technology ministry, we can fully adopt this model for the church and end bullying from the church to the school classroom!
