Student Entrepreneur Features in Forbes Magazine Online
Year 12 student Kerman Kohli (Mansfield) has had his Homework App featured in a Top 6 Apps list of back-to-school tools in the USA.
In the August 22nd online edition of Forbes Magazine, technology journalist Illya Pozin chose the app as one of six on a list of ‘Back-to-School Tools You Need to Know About’, just as American students prepare to return to school after the summer break. The unsolicited publicity on such a large global media platform is a real credit to Kerman, who developed the app last year after experiencing his own frustrations with the deadline demands of various assignments. The app has already featured in the USA on the television programme ‘ABC Action News’ on September 11th 2014.
In November last year, Kerman won the Tait Communication Senior Software Development award as part of the Bright Sparks competition sponsored by The Royal Society in New Zealand. The student-centred app helps students keep track of assignments and teacher instructions, using colour-coded visuals amongst other aspects. It earns Kerman up to $100 per day.
