Ann Makosinski | My 18-year Journey

Ann Makosinski’s first toy was a box of transistors; her youth was nothing short of innovative and unique. At 15, she was inspired to create a flashlight that ran off the heat of the human hand—the Hollow Flashlight—when one of her friends in the Philippines failed a school grade because she didn’t have any light or electricity with which to study at night.

#MakingThingsHappen has become Makosinski’s philosophy in life. Now, at the age of only 18, she shares her focus on enlightening others—to realize their true potential to innovate and create.
