It takes a visionary to spot opportunities where others can’t find any. Imagine you are binging on the good old Doritos chips and come across a uniquely shaped chip in the packet – what would you do about it? Chances are you might mindlessly eat it – that’s what the majority of us would do. But not this 13-year-old – who found a unique puffy chip and decided to post it on the internet.
13-Year-Old Rylee Stuart Took to the Internet to Share Her Unique Find
Rylee Stuart was digging into her packet of Doritos when she came across a very rare puff chip that changed her life. Rylee, instead of eating the chip, mindlessly decided to share her find with her internet friends – asking them what’s the right way to eat this chip. The Tik-Tok video of the chip went viral with recording 6 million views, and suggestions came pouring in with people asking her to put this chip on E-bay to see how much the chip will sell for. The teen took the advice seriously and did exactly just that – shared the picture of her unique chip on E-bay.
Her listing before it was taken down fetched the bid of around $100,000. But that’s not it; the listing and the viral Tik-Tok video caught the attention of Doritos Chief Marketing Officer Vandita Pandey.
A Unique Puffy Chip That Got Rylee $20,000 Reward
Rylee would have never imagined that a simple Tik-Tok video would turn her into an overnight sensation. Besides gaining popularity on the internet – Rylee also caught the eyes of Doritos Chief Marketing Officer Vandita Pandey. In an interview, Vandita mentioned how they had been following the story of the young miss Stuart and loved her entrepreneurial spirit. They even gave her $20,000 as a reward for having such keen observational skills.
Air-India Made History with an All-Women Crew on a 17-Hour Flight
An all-women Indian pilot crew made history after completing the longest non-stop commercial flight ever operated by Air-India. The team completed the 17-hour-long flight on Jan 11, 2021, according to a statement released by the airline.
The Air-India Crew Enjoyed a View From the North Pole
The plane departed from San Francisco on January 11 and arrived in Bengaluru, India passing through the North Pole, covering a distance of more than 8,600 miles.
The commander of the Air-India flight 176, Captain Zoya Aggarwal, shared how proud she was of the crew and as “India’s daughters” they were given the great opportunity to create a new chapter in Indian aviation history. The captain also mentioned that she’d been preparing for this particular flight for more than a year.
Her co-pilot, Captain Thanmei Papagari couldn’t resist but share the “superb” feeling she got flying over the North Pole and enjoying the view.
The two first officers on the Air-India flight who also enjoyed being part of this history-making flight are Captain Akansha Sonaware and Captain Shivani Manhas.
An Important International Connection for the Tech Industry
This flight is also the first to connect directly to the United States and South India, according to a statement from KIAB (Kempegowda International Airport, Bengaluru).
“This is the first non-stop flight between Bengaluru and the United States, connecting the world’s two tech hubs and sister cities — the original Silicon Valley and the Silicon Valley of India.”
This India-Air flight was important on many levels, and even India’s Minister of Civil Aviation, Hardeep Puri, congratulated the team on their journey.
The Highest Percentage of Women Pilots in the World
India’s aviation sector invests heavily in training women-pilots with about 12% of the country’s pilots being women. This is also the highest percentage in the world. Compared to the US with only 4% of female-pilots, that makes roughly three times the proportion to the states.
