India is a hub of young talents. Children are creating and innovating things at such a small age. Similarly, this is the story of 9-year-old Indian girl named Hana Muhammad Rafeeq. A young girl, wrote to Tim Cook about a storytelling app she had created called Hanas. Apple CEO Tim Cook responded to an email from a 9-year-old Indian app developer based in Dubai, congratulating her on being the world’s youngest iOS app developer.
The Hanas app helps parents to record stories. It’s a free iOS app. The girl claimed that she had developed the app when she was eight years old and wrote almost 10,000 lines of code. She also mentioned that she was into coding from the age of 5 years.
She asked Cook to preview the app and stated that she did not use any pre-made third-party libraries, classes, or codes in the development of the Hanas app.
Cook reportedly responded to the email by congratulating the girl on her many outstanding accomplishments at such a young age. He also stated that if she perseveres, she will be able to achieve incredible things in the future.
Hana has a sister named Leena and both are said to be self-taught coders, backed by their parents. Her sister has a website named Lehanas website aimed to teach kids. It goes without saying that Hana wants to work for Apple after going to the US for studies.
