DJ Focus couldn't wait to get back to Sierra Leone. AKA Kelvin Doe, this young man makes beautiful, functional and very useful electronic devices out of trash found in his native Sierra Leone. It's not clear whether he or M.I.T. was more impressed after his visit there.

An awesome young man. I applaud him and his parents and his teachers. And how great was that little Sierra Leone restaurant in Boston!
