A major U.S. technology publication claims to have found the next Steve Jobs – and she lives nowhere near Silicon Valley.
Wired magazine believes they have found the world’s next tech genius in a Mexican border town. Paloma Noyola Bueno, 12, lives in Matamoros, attends a school that sits next to a municipal waste dump and is supported by her mother and other family members who get by selling scrap metal and food in the streets.
So what makes this little girl from a border city that for years was embroiled in a turf war between the Zetas and Gulf drug cartels so special? Last year, this tween, the youngest of eight children, scored a maximum of 921 in Mexico’s version of the SATs – making her test score the best in the nation.
