The Bedazzled Nerd

The Bedazzled Nerd

They mocked us. Said we weren’t cool. Rejected us. They exiled us...probably to what they imagined is a wood-paneled basement.

They tried vilification doubling down on isolation thinking we’d crumble. But all it did was prepare us to rumble. When we couldn’t fit in we decided to break out.

Risk! Risk Is Our Business.

Nerds everywhere in every way are shaping pop culture: we bedazzle a culture thirsty for leadership...the visionary cure for rampant myopia: sculpturing stories, prompting righteous ruckus and establishing legacies...if not for ourselves than for our beloeved characters.

Because as Pharrell Williams can attest N*E*R*D means No-one Ever Really Dies.
