When Alex was 12, he witnessed a visually impaired woman struggling to cross a busy street without any assistive technology. It inspired him to try to create something to help people like her.
Over the next few years, Alex worked on creating iAid after school and during holidays. Though he says it took a lot of time and dedication, it has been an amazing experience.
He’s recently won an award for his invention and intends to use the award money to further his creation.
