Each and every person around us has their own unique set of skills and talents. Whether it is something someone else can do as well, or something specific to that person, we all are capable of greatness.

For instance, Boise High Student Ben Chappelle sets the bar very high for anyone wanting to make a name for themselves here at our school. Ben has been a magician for six years, and has found ways to spook our minds beyond comprehension. Often wielding just a deck of cards, Ben has made a name for himself in the halls of Boise High and at the YMCA where he volunteers performing magic for young kids.

Before he was a one man army of magic, he discovered the lost art through a David Blaine TV special that can now be found on Netflix. “I sat and rewinded for like three hours, one of his [Blaine’s] tricks over and over and over again. Trying to get it, and finally I did,” Ben explained about his first attempt to learn magic. Ben says that “David Blaine is definitely the one who inspired me to be where I’ am today.

Ben advises aspiring magicians that, to be successful, you need to spread out your resources. Get involved with magic books, magic on youtube, and even buy magic from online distributors. Ben Chappelle has made a big mark on Boise High School, with his incredible talent for the art of illusion.

He is a fantastic role model for those trying to enter into the world of magic and is great at helping others.

So the next time you see a guy with a deck of cards and a mystical aura about him, you can know for sure, that is Ben Chappelle – the magic man.
