Mama tells me I'm gifted and talented. But I know the truth. I'm just a nerd.

Kids call me Con-nerd - half Connor and all nerd.

Only a nerd goes to tutoring classes on weekend and in school holidays!

I'm supposed to become a doctor but I have this deep, dark secret: I just want to draw.

And my mega-cool cartoons are getting heaps of attention at school - I might even get into a special art class and have a go at an art competition. That would sure impress this girl I'm keen on ... and it might just be my chance to show the world my true destiny.

But I'm not sure my family will see it quite that way...
