Her father, Mohammed Rafeeq, first read the email. He stated that Hana was sleeping when she received an email. It wasn’t easy to wake her up.

Hana developed a storytelling app for children who like to listen to a story before bed. The main feature of this app is that parents can record stories in their own voices. The programme converts the audio of the story into recorded voice. She watched a documentary that gave her the idea. Hana claims that 10,000 lines of code were required to create this programme.

Hana has an elder sister named Leena, ten years old. She is also a programmer. The parents of Hana and Leena inspired them to become self-taught programmers. Leena made the Lehanas website to teach kids about vocabulary, colours, and animals. When Kerala was devastated by floods, Leena posted a link to the Chief Minister’s fund on her website.

Leena wants to pursue her future studies in the US, while Hana dreams of working with Tim Cook one day. Leena likes to code because it gives her a buzz to work through problems and see her programmes come to life. However, the sisters’ ultimate purpose is to uplift society and bring happiness to its citizens. They hope that this app will help to develop strong relations between parents and children

Parents have primarily taught their daughters at home. Leena stated how their father, a project management consultant, encouraged their mother to learn coding so she could help him with his firm, which is how they got involved in coding.
