Teenager gets Facebook internship after developing an app for Windows Phone

won $10,500 in a hackathon that took place in San Francisco earlier this month. Besides winning the money with her Windows Phone flavored app for Home Depot, the teenager also ended up with an offer to work as an intern at Facebook. Her app was designed to help both novice and experienced gardeners to find supplies needed for a landscaping project.
A bit of luck was involved as Jayaseker, a high school graduate, had come late to the event and presented her winning app just before Facebook's director of mobile partnerships, Emily White, was due to speak. White was so impressed with the teenager that not only did she give her a Summer internship as a partner engineer intern focusing on mobile app development, she also said that one day she herself will be working for Miss Jayaseker.

you forget, Apple woulnt offer an app developer anything, from past experiance, Apple would STEAL the idea/app/code/everything then proceed to ban said developers app from the app store, then freeze their developer account funds... Its happened quite a few times already... wont ever stop...

Why would Emily White, FB's director of mobile partnerships, be working for Nive?

She sees such promise in the girl that she thinks she will rise higher in the company after awhile. Then she could possibly be working under her. That happens alot. The employer becomes the employee and vice versa.
