Hillary Yip Ying-hei is definitely not your average 13-year-old. On top of attending school and surviving the gruelling academic demands on a daily basis, the seventh grader also runs her own business.

This discussion is set to be extendable. After it expires, the content will remain, but all guests will be removed. After that if any guests decide to join it, more days will be added to the discussion

Growing up in the age of technology, Yip, like many other children, understands full well the significance of keeping pace with innovation and the digital transformation. That tech-savvy mindfulness prompted her to launch an online language learning application at the age of 10. The idea came to her after a long struggle with learning Mandarin. MinorMynas is an online educational platform that helps children of all ages pick up another language through chatting by live video calls to those their own age. Through live interaction, children can engage in conversations to learn one another’s mother tongue.

this 13y-old girl sounds smarter and more business orientated than half of business-school student graduate. She's gonna be US president by 2032

this news come from a year ago, her rich mon pay the money, and 50 counties only 40000 download is a very small number, also she have nothing to do with the app, her mon hire the programer to develop the app, she just the spokesperson... the most important thing, if only 800 download per country, i dont even think this app has enough active user to support its running... and i am 100% sure someone wrote her a script as reporter will send them question before hand, look carefully how she react the first moment when the reporter asked

How does this program protect kids from adult predators, who are looking to lure children from their homes/families?
