Okay so the most famous "study" youtuber is ali abdaal who happens to have all A stars from secondary to A level and top it off with coming first in his class at cambridge (honesty amazing)


Is it really possible to be this intelligent with hard work or was it his rich family and genes that made him one of the smartest people in the uk.

Environment and money can put us at an advantage, however, I don't believe that it overcomes hard work. Whatever money Ali Abdaal's family may have, excessive or not, it doesn't downplay that fact that effort and time were put into his work.

I know him personally, and I can tell you that it's entirely about the constant drive to succeed in every facet of life, strong and persistent dedication for whatever he does, as well as intelligence. He does not come from an especially "rich family"; just a normal middle class, single parent household.
