DJ Man Focus : Innovating Youth Hold The Future

Posted by Monica Brasov-Curca | 14-03-2014 17:51 | Stories | Category: Developing World

Kevin is a 15 year old kid from Sierra Leon. Anyone can look at his situation and say he is:  impoverished, lacking or in need… BUT none of these actually describe him.

Kevin is a child prodigy that has made batteries, generators, a radio station and many many many more things - all from the trash. MIT Media Lab invited him to Boston to be a resident technologist.  This is his story.  It is also the the story of young people all over the world… they are part of a youth movement that can look around them and solve the problems that surround them.  Kevin is inspirational… the potential for many more young innovating Kevins is awesome.

Thanks to my friend and MIT grad Angela Lih Chang for the heads up.
