    Default Kelvin Doe, self-taught teenage engineering whiz (from Sierra Leon) visits MIT

    This is a pretty emotionally affecting video. This kid is a completely self-taught engineering whiz who has scavenged through the trash in his native Sierra Leone to create his own radio, his own FM radio station, and the generator/batteries to provide power for them. A singular prodigy who demonstrates the unlimited potential that can be found anywhere -- and the challenge to identify and foster it.

    "Completely self-taught, Kelvin has created his own radio station where he broadcasts news and plays music under the moniker, DJ Focus. Kelvin became the youngest person in history to be invited to the “Visiting Practitioner’s Program” at MIT. THNKR had exclusive access to Kelvin and his life-changing journey – experiencing the US for the first time, exploring incredible opportunities, contending with homesickness, and mapping out his future."

    Oh, thank you for the clip, Mohandas! What a great inspiration in someone so young. I teared up when Kelvin talked about helping his family. I don't doubt this young man will go far. He has that go get 'em attitude. I wish him great success and happiness.
