Wait, Did This 15-Year-Old From Maryland Just Change Cancer Treatment? – Forbes.
Amazing, What our children are capable of if given the resources to learn and study. His advice for kids (and their parents) trying to figure out what to do with their creativity and imagination: “Make sure to be passionate about whatever it is you get into, because otherwise you won’t put the right amount of work into it.” Andraka was rejected by almost 200 researchers in his search for a lab to do his nanotube strip work until one scientist at Johns Hopkins gave him the space to work. “No one will be excited about your work if you’re not excited about it.” All this from a 15 year old… I wanna be like Andraka when i grow up.
Sure hope the adults in charge are reading and listening to this.
Progress can only happen in education with the investment of time and tools for our children.
God Bless America, with passion, commitment and drive.
