For everything wrong with the world right now, there’s at least one thing very right, and that is Lin-Manuel Miranda. In addition to being amazingly talented, he’s just an all-around good person. If the world were filled with Lins, it would be a much better place. Here are the top reasons why Lin is such a wonderful human being.
Utterly genius every single time.
3. His lovely, lovely tweets
Lin's Twitter makes us laugh, think and feel like we matter.
4. His admiration for the people he works with
We all need someone in our lives who looks at us the way Lin looks at pretty much everyone.
5. He’s true to his roots
That he refers to his Twitter followers collectively as Twitterico is pretty telling, not to mention his advocacy for Puerto Rican debt relief.
6. He’s gracious toward his fans
I think Ham4Ham highlights this best. A ton of people showed up for their first lotto and he said, “I’ve gotta do something to entertain the masses.” And no matter how busy he's been, he's still made time to do just that.
7. He uses his platform for good
He just released a song and has sold t-shirts featuring fan designs of quotes from his Tonys speech to benefit the victims of the Orlando shooting.
8. He’s not your traditional theatre star, but he’s paved his own way
He's not much of a singer, but he's applied his talents in such a way that he doesn't need to be to secure his place as a massive Broadway star.
