Indi Wells' quest to help a relative with anxiety has seen her succeed on the world stage.
Her design for a total relax massage box was the winning paper prototype for the Asia Pacific region in the 8-14 year-olds category in micro:bit's competition.
The competition called on students to find innovative solutions to help to solve problems facing the world.
Indi, a student at Montello Primary School in Burnie, has a passion for coding.
"I was so surprised and really happy and proud of myself," she said. "I love all the cool things you can do and all the different parts you can put on a single micro:bit."
Indi was inspired to design the product to help her cousin who has anxiety and is now bringing the idea to life.
"I thought because it is quite difficult to get him to relax maybe I could make something he could put his hand on and it would spin and give him a relaxing massage," she said.
Science, technology, engineering and mathsteacher Daniel Edwards said Indi's success was an achievement the whole school was proud of.

"To have someone from Montello win in a global competition is incredible," he said.
"I think it is really inspiring, not just for Indi, but for other people at school so they can see people from Montello can have that level of success.
"I think this would have to be the biggest award the school has won, but we are having success across the board which is great and I think it is just the start of it.
"I think it is critically important that they can learn how to use skills from all areas, it is not just in STEM, it is bringing everything together to look at real problems."
Principal Dion McCall said the school's $33,000 grant from Google had been key to developing their STEM program.
"Indi has done a magnificent job. All our students have opportunities they haven't previously had and part of that has been because they have had access to new and different technology," he said.
"Our coordinator Daniel Edwards and Cameron Hales have been instrumental and all our staff are on board to make science and mathematics a focus. We are looking for lots of opportunities for our students to aspire to do better."
Indi now has her sights set on developing a product to help the elderly with their mobility.
