Kelvin Doe is a young African engineer who became famous for his genius approach to building his own radio and station at just 13, playing music to the locals of Sierra Leone under the alias of DJ Focus. Kelvin used waste materials and found scrap to attempt to invent something that could help improve the living conditions of his home town, even reaching the finals of GMin's Innovate Salone idea competition, building a generator from scrap items.

His accomplishments did not stop there, he received an invite to the US and eventually becoming the youngest participant of the Visiting Practitioner's Programme at MIT. He truely is one special young man and the video below documents his remarkable journey.
