印裔少女獲選時代年度風雲兒童

 A 15-year-old Colorado high school student and young inventor has been named Time magazine’s first “Kid of the Year”. Indian- American Gitanjali Rao has invented new technologies across a range of fields. At 10 years old, she created a lead detection tool after learning about the water crisis in Michigan. After that, she also came up with an app that uses artificial intelligence to detect cyberbullying.
 Rao said she hopes she can inspire others to dream up ideas to solve the world’s problems, saying “If I can do it, you can do it, and anyone can do it.” She is constantly dreaming big. “Look at how you can do it because there’s no one stopping you but yourself.”
 Last year, climate activist Greta Thunberg became Time’s youngest Person of the Year when she was given the honor at age 16.
 Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year for 2020. The two made history on November 7th when they beat Donald Trump in the election. Harris on that day became the country’s first female, first Black and first South Asian vice president-elect.

 美國科羅拉多州十五歲的中學生發明家拉奧,獲選《時代》雜誌首屆「年度風雲兒童」。印度裔美籍少女拉奧發明了許多不同領域的新技術。十歲時,拉奧得知密西根州出現水汙染危機,於是發明了一種可以檢測飲水含鉛量的工具。之後,她還發想設計了一款利用人工智慧偵測網路霸凌的手機應用程式。
 拉奧希望能啟發其他人發想出解決世界上各種問題的方法。她說:「如果我做得到,表示你也做得到,任何人都做得到。」她一直以來都懷抱著遠大夢想,鼓勵大家:「探索自己的潛力,因為除了你以外,沒有任何人可以阻止你。」
