This 11-Year-Old Is Melting Hearts And Keeping New Yorkers Sane

Cancel your overpriced therapy sessions ASAP because for $2 this kid could potentially change your life.

Ciro Ortiz, this adorable 11-year-old middle-schooler, is giving “emotional advice” to Brooklyn subway riders in need of guidance.

With his parents’ approval, Ortiz has been setting up shop every Sunday for the past few weeks from noon to 2 p.m. On a good day he makes about $50. But don’t go thinking that he’s splurging his earnings on random crap. His parents said that he’s actually using his money to buy food for kids who can’t afford it. What an angel!

So what makes Ortiz a qualified counselor? Well, his mom said that Ortiz is wise beyond his years and is extremely sensitive, which is why his advice is usually on point.

“Somebody came up to us and said that what he told her is what she’d been feeling in her gut that whole time,” Adam Ortiz, Ciro’s dad, told The New York Post.

In fact, it’s his mom who helps him set up his office and marketing strategy.


She’s always close by monitoring his business making sure it runs smoothly.

So if you’re in need of some life advice, reach out to the business Instagram account his mom created.


@emotionaladvicekid. He’s now at 130 followers.

Or stop by the little guy’s office. He accepts walk-ins.
