about this story

Introduction (pic 1):
Many people believe that when they pass the unknown, it's nothing worthwhile or valuable. They don't see any immediate value so they keep moving on about their business. In reality what they passed up on could be a diamond in the rough waiting for its chance to shine.
(Pic 2): Counterargument
However evidence shows that instead of searching for potential in the dark it is reliable to go to something already established as valuable. A perfect example of this is acting in Hollywood. Studios would rather find talent from established acting families or schools to make them big money instead of searching for the perfect fit. Disney chose to cast big name talent to play the avengers instead of little known talent.
(Pic 3):
Not everyone is fortunate enough to show their value to the world. This causes many to be left behind in the dark, as if they were locked behind the door to the public's eye.
(Pic 4)
From this darkness however, one can begin to hone their skills to perfection. Dedication, no pressure of having to work professionally, and pure enjoyment in what you do can go go a long way.
Conclusion(Pic 5):
In conclusion, once someone hones there skillset, they have armed themselves with the tools needed to either be recognized or go out and make a name for themselves in the professional world. In the 2000s Quentin Tarantino chose to cast the at the time unknown Austrian actor Christoph Waltz to play an important villain role in the movie "Inglorious Basterds" He was confident that none of the big name actors really fitted the role like Waltz did. Waltz went from being an unknown actor before to a famous one with multiple awards seemingly overnight.
