- After an injury, Mya started creating NFTs and sold $10,000 to date.
- Her digital art is priced as much as $140,000 on NFT marketplace OpenSea.
- Trying different things at a young age made her realize her talent in creating these digital artworks.
15-year-old Zachary High freshman Mya Parker got her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) torn in September, causing her to stop playing the sport she’s in. Her interest in art and investing gave her the idea to start creating non-fungible tokens (NFTs). Her digital art sold more than $10,000 online.
According to an article by TheAdvocate, Parker said while sitting at her mother’s real estate office:
“I would never had the time to do all this before I got hurt. It’s allowed me to create a living. Well, not quite a living.”
She has created around 100 unique NFTs and her digital art is priced as much as $140,000 on the NFT marketplace OpenSea. She mentioned that her art is based on experience and that she draws casually when bored.
Parker’s reportedly been in the talented art program in the Zachary school since the third grade. Her interest in investing was brought to life by her grandfather.
Candace Temple, Parker’s mother, said she’s so captivated by investing to the point that she would rush from school every day to take a look at how her shares did. Getting into NFT at an early age is a good thing for her, Temple added.
“She’s been able to learn about the economy, learn about finance and it’s allowed her to use her gifts,” her mother shared.
Reading a book about a girl who had stock in Coca-Cola boosts Mya’s interest in stocks. Hoping one day she would own a part of the beverage company.
Mya said the key is to work on different things early on to identify what a person is good at. As long as they have a good heart, they will find out what they’re good at.
