Today is National Left Hander’s Day!
The international holiday aims to “raise awareness of the everyday issues that lefties face as we live in a world designed for right-handers.” This can range from having difficulties finding an appropriate pair of scissors, can opener or guitar to even dealing with wage discrimination; In 2014, a Harvard economist found that lefties earn 10 to 12 percent less annually than righties.
However, studies have shown left-handed people to be over-represented among the highly intelligent and highly creative! Click here for some famous lefties that are known for their outstanding creativity and artistic talent!
So extend a lefty high five to your favorite lefty today! Happy celebrating!
