A teenage scientist and inventor has been named Time magazine’s first-ever Kid of the Year.
Gitanjali Rao, 15, has invented technologies including a device that can identify lead in drinking water, and an app that detects cyberbullying.
Gitanjali was chosen from more than 5,000 US nominees for the landmark title.
“If I can do it, you can do it, and anyone can do it,” she said.
She also said that “my goal has changed from creating my own devices to solve the world’s problems, but inspiring others to do the same as well.”
