People are generally supportive about what I'm doing, and I get a lot of pretty interesting advice from people. - [Narrator] This Great Big Story was made possible by LEGO. Play her way. - I'm Hillary Yip, I'm 14 and I live in Hong Kong. I'm the founder and CEO of MinorMynas. Minor Mynas started as a foreign language learning app, where we connect kids from all over the world. First to learn in a peer-to-peer environment and to make friends from across boarders. Right now we've got users from 150 countries and counting. I think we kids are neglected on the market before other video games or educational products. MinorMynas wants to be the middle ground, where we're able to have fun by getting to connect with new friends, while being able to learn something new. When I was 10 years old my Chinese was appalling, and my mom finally had it and sent my brother and I to a Chinese summer camp. It went very well because we had no choice but to speak in Mandarin. And a couple months later when I saw entrepreneurship competition for kids, I wondered if I could bring the experience online, so that all us kids can learn languages in a more effective manner. After the competition, someone approached me and said that he'd love to be my mentor if I wanted to continue my idea. So I jumped at the chance. What is MinorMynas able to do? First of all, we are able to provide a safe environment for kids. The best thing about being a CEO is the freedom and the flexibility. What I do on a day-to-day basis is generally pitching, developing investor decks, talking to investors, talking to customers, writing up our vision for the future and executing upon marketing grounds. Outside of school hours, I tend to just prioritize my tasks with MinorMynas. So, after I get every thing done, I get to read, I get to debate, and when my friends are in town I get to hangout with them. My family has been very very supportive. (mumbles) my mom learning with me throughout the whole journey of MinorMynas. Because none of us have worked on a startup before. There will always be people who tell you that you can't. Whether it's because of your age, gender, where your from. But what we can do is to continue working on what we're doing. That's the only way we can prove them wrong.
