Do you have a favorite fantasy book or movie?
I love fantasy fiction books because they are the perfect escape into magical worlds. Magical creatures? Fantastical adventures? Yes, please! But I also love it when the characters have some sort of superpower!
While most of us can’t fly, read minds, become invisible or walk through walls, I really do think we ALL have our very own superpower. These are the things that make us unique, and they’re totally worth celebrating. (You can read more about my thoughts on celebrating your differences right here!)
When you get to know your secret superpower, you can lean into it and make it even stronger! And when you lean into what you do best, it can open up lots of cool new opportunities and experiences. So while you may not have supernatural powers like the kids in The Vork Chronicles, this fun quiz will help you find out what YOUR superpower is. Take the quiz below, then come say hi on my Instagram and let me know what you got!

Mostly A’s: Kindness
You have a kind, soft heart that is always looking out for the good of other people! It’s important to you to show kindness in everything you do, and that’s why other people love to be around you. When kindness is your superpower, that means you have a gift for serving and helping people. It also means you probably receive a lot of kindness in return! Don’t ever lose this awesome superpower. It will take you far in life.
Mostly B’s: Wisdom
You definitely have some major smarts, and not just book smarts. Congratulations – wisdom is your superpower! I’m willing to bet your friends and family probably look to you when they need advice or ideas on what to do. When wisdom is your superpower, that also means you have life smarts that will help you to make wise decisions. And if you keep on using this superpower, it will only get strong as you get older!
Mostly C’s: Humor
This is one of my personal favorite super powers. If you got mostly C’s you’re really good at making other people laugh! Sometimes laughter is the best medicine. And that’s especially true when you know how to use it to help other people feel better and get through hard things. While it’s not always the right time or place for humor, it will definitely be welcome in a lot of situations. Just read the room before you tell a funny joke, and watch people smile!
Mostly D’s: Empathy
Empathy might seem similar to kindness, but it definitely has its own super flair to it! Having empathy means you have the ability to understand and share the feelings of another person. You can look outside yourself and into someone else’s life and picture what they’re going through. This helps you relate better to other people and let them know that you’re on their side.
Empathetic people make the best kinds of friends because you know they’ll always be there to support you!
Mostly E’s: Leadership
Have you ever had a friend who always makes the plans, tells everyone what’s going on, and is the first to try out all the coolest new stuff? That person might be YOU. Your superpower is leadership, which means you always do a great job leading the pack. Whenever other people feel lost or are looking for a direction, there’s a good chance they look to you to help them out. Leadership is a great skill to have in school, when you’re on a team, and for the rest of your life as you follow your goals and dreams!
