Identical Twins, UCLA students turned human rights activists

We have always enjoyed creating things as children, and we realized that we still love the creative, yet strategic process of inventing and creating things to solve problems, whether it be through activism or intellectual property. At the age of 16, we finished a prototype and self-applied for a patent. Two years later, we're working on problems that concern human rights, to creatively find solutions to problems that are larger than us. If becoming a wiser, worldlier, and professional child-at-heart wouldn’t make my six-year-old self proud, I don’t know what would!
