Mercer Henderson is now 15 years old. At 13, making what she calls “soundmojis” was something she did all the time. After finding her emoji of choice, she would attach sound clips in her text messages. One day a light bulb went off! She decided, why not put the two together and make an app?! The app features over 50 emojis with fun soundbites. She called her product Audiots.
Mercer’s favorite part of being a kidpreneur:
“The most fun part for me is the emails I get from people telling me they like the app! One girl told me it is the only app she has ever downloaded! I try to email everyone back after I do my homework and stuff. Also, being on TV was fun.”
To take Audiots from concept to reality, Mercer Henderson got a leg-up from her mother, Lisa, a product marketing exec at Salesforce. Her uncle, a LucasArts sound engineer, also pitched in on sound-mixing. Not a bad startup support team, right?
