When I was nine years old, the only things that helped me kill time and keep boredom away were TV shows and playtime with my friends. At times, I took to books, because as soon as I got engrossed in one, not only did time fly, but I got to explore new worlds.
However, today’s kids are exceedingly tech-savvy and knowledgeable with the ways of the Internet, and cannot remain bored for too long. In fact, Aadithyan Rajesh, a 13-year-old boy from Kerala happens to own a website design and software development company in Dubai!
He developed his first ever mobile application when he was only nine, and since then, he has also designing logos and websites for several people who are his clients.
All because he was bored!
Aadithyan’s foray into the world of computers started at the age of five, and along the way, he fell in love with coding and designing apps and games.
“I was born in Thiruvilla, Kerala, and my family moved here when I was five. The first website my dad showed me was BBC Typing, a website for kids where young students can learn typing,” he told the Khaleej Times.
Eight years down the line, the whiz-kid squashed all age-related misconceptions by launching his own company, ‘Trinet Solutions’ last year.
A student of Elite English School in Abu Hail, Deira, Aadithyan’s company interestingly comprises a total of three employees—all of whom are friends and students from the school.
“I need to be over the age of 18 to actually become an established company owner. However, we function like a company. We have worked with over 12 clients, and have given them our design and coding services entirely for free,” he said.
We hope to see greater achievements from this tech genius in the future. All the best, Aadhithyan.
