18-year-old Clinton Imaro, the founder of Afrowatch and Code Space, will tell you there is a lot to learn to play in the tech space and that parents need to encourage their kids to become techies.

Imaro is a software engineer and web/blockchain developer, and hardly knew he was a techie until he started having conversations about tech.

I never knew that programming existed. I was simply interested in innovation until 2017, when I began to get ideas about programming.

Imaro then took a programming class for Java Basic and his professional journey in tech began full scale.

Interestingly, he wanted to be a doctor or an electrical engineer, but the switch happened, and now, he builds up to three professional websites in a month.

But, he says Afrowatch is not an on-demand platform like Netflix. “Afrowatch is like a live TV platform like DStv Now. What makes it different is that you watch more with less data.”

Imaro says Afrowatch is profitable and will make money through the creators, but it is free for users.

Imaro said a whole lot more about education and the future for him and what other teens can do if they want to become techies.
