Zora Ball, Youngest Person to Create a Mobile App Video Game

Good morning family. I am going to use this blog to highlight positive stories about African American achievements. Here is such a story. The Grio reports that:

Seven-year-old Zora Ball has become the youngest person to create a full-version mobile video game application.

The Philadelphia native presented her new app at University of Pennsylvania’s “Bootstrap Expo,” reports the Philadelphia Tribune.

Ball attends Harambee Institute of Science and Technology Charter School, located in West Philadelphia.

Harambee is where Ball learned the Bootstrap programming language through the after-school program STEMnasium Learning Academy.
