Time’s award is just one of Gitanjali’s many achievements. In 2017 she won the Discovery Education 3M Young Scientist Challenge. Gitanjali invented Tethys, a device that can detect lead in drinking water using a mobile app.

It took the seventh-grader only five months to develop the device.

Forbes also featured the young inventor in their 30 under 30 list in 2019.

In 2020 Gitanjali published a book called A Young Innovator’s Guide to STEM. She wanted to inspire more people to approach today’s problems with innovative solutions.

Her latest invention is Kindly, an anti-cyberbullying service. Due to Covid-19 Gitanjali virtually launched it in early May 2020. The app uses AI and natural language processing to identify early signs of cyberbullying.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
