04-12-2020 Fri 17:05

15-year-old Indian-American Gitanjali Rao has been named by TIME magazine as the first-ever ‘Kid of the Year’ for her astonishing work using technology to tackle issues ranging from contaminated drinking water to opioid addiction and cyberbullying.
Rao was selected from a field of more than 5,000 nominees. She was interviewed by actor and activist Angelina Jolie for the TIME special. “The world belongs to those who shape it. However, uncertain that the world may feel at a given moment, the reassuring reality seems to be that each new generation produces more of what these kids have already achieved: positive impact, in all sizes,” TIME said.
