Are you a superhero? Ciara Judge aka "Superscience Girl" thinks we all can find our superpower and be a superhero in changing the world. Find out more from her super cool video on how to find your superpower.

 

Ciara Judge is an 18 year-old scientist and entrepreneur from Kinsale, Ireland. Over the past three years, she has won the BT Young Scientist, the European Union Contest for Young Scientists and the Google Global Science Fair with her teammates for their research on the work of rhizobium with cereal crops. In September 2014, Time Magazine named Ciara as one of the 25 most influential teens worldwide, and she has been pegged as a 'rising star' and 'one to watch' by several national and international news outlets. She is now co-director of her first company, Germinaid Innovations, with Emer Hickey. Last summer, she began work on her second startup PurchaseMate, while studying at MIT, Boston.
