What do you mean?
I mean this young girl has creativity to spare and she was lucky the system gave her a chance to express it. Her "luck" may come from new information technologies – she said twice that she directly emailed some professors. The educative system may be improved in this direction to encourage young minds to succeed. She is a brilliant example of how creativity is at its best when we are young, free of prejudices.
Ya, that's a good point. She was very fortunate to get that kind of freedom. It would be great if more young people were given that kind of freedom to explore ideas, without the pressure of having to produce immediate results.
This point was made in the Rich Dad, Poor Dad books, in reference to risk-taking behavior.It does make sense, though, that communities require a spectrum of risk. Too little risk all the time means too little initiated change, and vulnerability to external change. Too much initated change implies instability and the possibility of catastrophic failure.
