Plenty of 13-year-olds want to become doctors when they grow up. Mallory Kievman is one of them, but she already has a pretty impressive extracurricular achievement to bolster her med school application: Mallory is CEO and founder of a company that might just cure one of the world’s oldest and most annoying maladies, the hiccups. Kievman is preparing to launch her product, the Hiccupop, a hiccup-stopping lollipop of her own invention. She has a patent pending, financial backers, and a team of business consultants (in training).
