Poster inspired by Self-taught Prodigy

I stumbled upon a video of a 15 year old, self-taught engineering whiz from Sierra Leone, who collected spare parts from the trash to build batteries, generators and transmitters. Kelvin Doe became the youngest person in history to be invited to the "Visiting Practitioner's Program" at MIT. His story was so captivating that I immediately had to create a poster in honor of this young man. We complain about the lack of resources readily available to us and we use that as an excuse to underachieve, but Kelvin has defied the odds and persevered in the midst of his circumstances. And his main purpose to succeed was not money but simply to help his family acquire a better standard of living. Hats off to him.
