The Youth Digital Enterprise Award is designed to provide scholarship funding to support young people who are developing and/or have an idea or concept for developing a smart and innovative enterprise project with a digital focus.
In late February, after submitting a successful written expression of interest, I was invited to present my BIRD initiative (Biomimicry Identification Robot Device) to a panel of experts in the youth and IT sectors and, from there, was extremely thrilled to have been awarded scholarship funding from the Ministry of Youth Development.
Plastic pollution is a really big problem we face locally, nationally and globally and I’m hoping that my project can play a key part in tackling this pressing issue. I am super excited about using this grant to further my BIRD development by apply modern technology and programming systems towards helping our environment.
Huge thanks for the MYD and the Youth Digital Enterprise Award for their support. I can’t wait to progress to the next stage of my project!
