His name is Kelvin Doe. Long story short, this amazing boy from Sierra Leone is a self-taught engineering whiz! At the age of 13, he created batteries and generators using materials he picked up around his house or from trash bins. Keep in mind, he is from a country that it not fortunate enough to have every day things that some of you may be used to (i.e. electricity), so for him to be able to teach himself engineering skills is major.
Doe, a completely self-taught engineer, manages his own fully-staffed community radio station in Sierra Leone where he broadcasts news and plays music under the moniker ‘DJ Focus.’ The radio station is powered by a generator created from a deteriorating voltage stabilizer, which he found in the trash, while a simple antenna lets his neighborhood listen in.
Oh, yeah, and he’s just 15 (some say 16) years young.
