    It’s estimated that just 10 to12 percent of the human population is left-handed. Across cultures and over the years, left-handed people have been described as sinister, evil, crooked and the like. But in modern, more tolerant societies, the lefty seems to thrive. A University of London scholar even wrote that left-handed people produce an above-average quota of high achievers. What does it mean to be a lefty today? VOA’s Laurel Bowman, a lefty, explores.
