Earlier this year Zora Ball was your average 1st grader until she decided to create and develop a mobile video game app, making her the youngest person to ever do so. At just 7-years old Zora managed to learn a programming language called “Bootstrap” that is normally used to teach kids ages 12 through 16 the different concepts of Algebra by using video games. Her teachers and family were astonished by her accomplishment. 

She was invited to an expo at the University of Penn where she was put on the spot and asked to reconfigure the app in front of everyone to prove that it was her that developed the mobile app in the first place and not her older brother who is a scholar student. Zora successfully did so and got rid of any doubt that anyone had.  Zora Ball is now referred to a young prodigy with an extremely bright future in technology and computer science. Young Zora is an example of Black Excellence not having an age requirement. Written By: @Champion_Us

Meet Zora Ball. She is a seven year old who learned how to program her own mobile video game. How cool is that? 

She used a programming language call Bootstrap and her program was unveiled at UPenn’s Bootstrap Expo this past January. You can read more about her story here

It’s exciting to see kids getting exposed to computer programming at such a young age since our world now kind of revolves around computers and mobile devices.

Rock on Zora, rock on.

“Ball developed the game using programming language Bootstrap, which is usually taught to students between the ages of 12 and 16, to help them learn concepts of algebra via video game development.

According to Mashable, Ball also successfully reconfigured the app when asked to do so at the Expo, silencing anyone who may have thought that her older brother – a STEM scholar of the year – helped her program the game.”

Jezebel has many problems and is wrong about many things. This is not one of them. You are wasting your time. Even worse, you’re making yourselves look bad and devaluing your actually valid points. Don’t be dogmatic fools; don’t try and spread libel against Jezebel regardless of its accuracy, just because it’s Jezebel.
