Two 17-year-olds put pandemic downtime to good use, creating websites to help others – OCRegister
What can two 17-year-old boys do to counter a raging pandemic while hunkered down for months at home?
Plenty, if they happen to be Jay Doshi and Jackie Ni.
The two teens don’t know each other — Doshi lives in Cerritos and Ni in Irvine; they attended different high schools. But they’ve been like minded of late, matching their considerable skills with a desire to help others as the coronavirus grips the nation.
Each came up with an idea for a website to connect people in need to the goods or services or money that can help them. With big assists from family and friends, each made his idea a reality and are reaching thousands of people. And both have done all this while finishing online classes and other tasks, like getting ready for the coming college year.
