"In the biology classes at the Community College I discovered the potential that marine algae have and how this could be applied to recycling"


"During my visit to the Science Museum in Boston, in 2003, I discovered a water purification device that ran on ultraviolet rays and was also very cheap. I thought about how it could be used to help poor people."


"At age 15 I created Versatile, a system that combines the technology available in waste recycling, creation of biomass and farming for developing countries, and in 2009 I won with this project the international  award Invent Your World Challenge.


"Anyone can be an entrepreneur, it’s a question of bringing out what we have inside"


"Now I’m an inventor, and with the help of my father I work in creating an online tool (Inventors without borders) to help all those young people who want to develop their ideas."


"It’s like a role-playing game in which a challenge is posed to the inventor who must go to the different "knowledge stores" available to find the right tools, apply the knowledge and meet the challenge"


"To help young people we should have even more knowledge  and be able to acquire it in less time"


"We must enable many more young inventors to be generated, because the world is full of challenges, and young people have great creative potential"


"Adolescents have the knowledge available on Internet, yet they don’t have many responsibilities (they don’t have to look for a job or start a family or take care of their parents). That’s why they have great creative potential "
