Meet Maya. Over dinner one night, she and her parents had an idea for an app to teach 7 languages to kids through fables & now she is turning that idea into reality. Together, the family put together a successful Kickstarter project. Maya is now in the process of finding and managing 21 individuals to provide the foreign language story elements. We look forward to future updates from this budding entrepreneur & tech girl!
