The Pic-A-Talk Story

by Uma Louise Roa, CEO/Co-founder of Pic-A-Talk

Pic-A-Talk started out as a school project where we were asked to come up with a solution to any pain or struggle we experience on a daily basis using technology. As someone who was content with her life, I was stumped. So I asked my mother for advice and she put me in the shoes of my little sister, Lea.
