15 year old Gitanjali Rao is raising the bar on so many different levels! For the first time ever Time‘s #KidofTheYear goes to the teen scientist Gitanjali for her work in technology.
On December 4, 2020, Gitanjali Rao was featured on the cover of TIME magazine and named “Kid of the Year”.
Karishma Mehta, founder of Official Humans of Bombay says,
“If anyone ever tells you – ‘you’re too young’ or ‘you’re too old’ or that young girls are limited to certain career paths or that ‘women can’t’ – SHOW THEM THIS. SO stoked- big day for us all!”
Actor Priyanka Chopra Jonas shares her thoughts on Twitter and says this – “Blown away by @TIME’s first-ever Kid of the Year, Gitanjali Rao! Only 15 years old & tackling issues ranging from contaminated drinking water to opioid addiction & cyber bullying. Thank you Gitanjali for leading the way for the next generation.”
