Gitanjali Rao, a 15-year old teen from Colorado was named by Time Magazine as the first ever “Kid of the Year”. She was picked from over 5,000 nominees. Some of her inventions are “Kindly”, an application that can spot cyberbullying, a monitor water pollutants, and a warning system for a prescription-drug addiction. Apart from this, she was also awarded as America’s Top Young Scientist in 2017 and was included in last year’s Forbes under 30 list. In an interview with Angelina Jolie, Rao shared that her goal was not only to make her own devices that can fix modern world problems, but to also inspire others to do the same. To make this possible, she worked with various academic organizations to inspire young people in creating their own inventions. She has already mentored over 30,000 students and counting.
