In this illuminating talk, Angelina Arora, a 16-year-old innovator, describes the importance of asking questions and how to bounce back from failure, all through the lens of her two new solutions to global problems.

Angelina Arora is the creator of a new toxin-free plastic, made completely out of waste, that decomposes 1.5 million times faster than conventional plastics. She now continues to develop her plastic for medical applications and investigate new ways of how cancer could be metastasising.

For her research, Angelina has received multiple scholarships to international universities and was the grand award winner at the prestigious International Science Fair. Not only confining her time to scientific pursuits, Angelina conducts charity work nationally and internationally.

As a result, she was acknowledged for leadership in social justice by the Hon Dame Marie Bashir Peace Prize, was named Young Citizen of the Year 2019, Channel 7’s Young Achiever of the Year Award Winner, Green Globe Winner and was the nominee for Young Australian of the Year. Using her profile and voice, Angelina now empowers young people to follow their passions as she believes her generation is the one that will make a difference.
