Read the text.

These days any teenager is usually thinking about taking his school exams and deciding on what subjects to study. He might be considering what job to choose for the future life. He's probably wondering what his first salary will be and how soon it will be before he earns enough to buy a car or rent a flat. Not Nick D’Alosio.


Nick, from London, recently became a millionaire – not through playing the lottery, but by designing and developing a phone application which he then sold to Yahoo for €18m! Nick's experience is the perfect example of how a dream can become a reality. As a child Nick had always been technical and talented. At the age of nine he was editing videos and making 3-D models on his computer. Then at 12, he taught himself basic programming to be able to create apps. From his first app, launched when he was still twelve, he earned €79 on its first day and this encouraged him to go on to produce another and another. It was a great hobby. But for Nick, it was still just that – a hobby. He went to school, went to parties and played sports just like all the other kids. No one knew that in his bedroom he was designing things that would soon completely change his life!


A few years later, at fifteen, Nick had the idea for an app that could summarise news stories, which he called Summly. He wanted young people to get brief information about news stories, which would let them decide whether they wanted to read the full versions or not, something that no other app could do. The app immediately became popular and attracted investment from a big company. Then the Internet giant, Yahoo, became interested and not only bought the app, but hired its clever, talented young inventor, too.


So what does the future hold for Nick? He plans to return to education to take his A levels and later he wants to take a degree. Most of all, he wants to start up new businesses and continue developing his own ideas. Whatever happens, Nick's future working life will certainly not be the normal 9-5 routine that most of us have to look forward to!
