Cane's Arcade- Cane's struggle for success

Cane is an eight year old boy who was sitting at his dad's car repair shop. Being too young to help with the cars he decided to make a cardboard arcade game. He open up shop right at the front door of the shop and sat out front. He offered the chance to play his game but no one seemed interested.


But a man was walking by saw and heard that cane made his own arcade. He saw that cane hasn't had a single customer all day. So he decides to play a few of his hand made games.


The man was amazed by cane's creativity he decided to make a movie about cane's arcade, but before he did that he made a shout out on all of the social medias about cane's arcade, and people flew all around the world just to play is hand-made cardboard video games.


Cane taught me that even if you falter you can always have resilience and make the best of it, because he didn't have a lot of customers at the beginning but he didn't let that stop him and now he is known world wide.


So as a result cane showed great determination by standing outside waiting for a customer. By doing this he is now known all over the world just because of his determination and sacrifice.
