Normally, 6th graders are kids who usually begged to their parents to buy them the latest game console for a simple reason that their classmate got one. For them life having that cool soccer shoes or that fancy colorful bracelet with their initials in it is the best time ever.
Who could have ever imagine that a certain 6th grader envisioned to make his own video games to play with. “A lot of kids these days like to play games, but now they want to make them,” says Thomas Suarez, a 6th grader at a middle school in LA. Suarez at this time already have his own company named CarrotCorp. He’s the mind behind Earth Fortune, an app which will show different colors of the Earth depending on your fortune; and Bustin Jieber, a “whack-a-mole” game for Justin Bieber.
That basically answers the title of this post and that’s not all because Suarez has a long way to go. He started an App Club in school which allows students to learn how to design apps. He said that he will be making more apps in the future and is planning to learn Android programming and development.
Suarez inspired a lot people when he had his TED Talk from the recent TEDx conference in Manhattan Beach. Get to hear his speech with the video shown below.
