In 2005, at the same young age, she also began giving lectures. She started working on her first novel, "Yang in Disguise", in 2006, and it was published in March 2011. Adora's public speeches revolve around making the world a better place. She enlightens intelligent adults about the problems faced by equally intelligent children and discusses issues of inequality, the mistakes made by adults, and the limitations that children encounter in life.

In one of her famous TED Conference speeches, Adora humorously demonstrated that adults are responsible for the most frustrating moments in human history, not children. She believes that adults lack the "childlike thinking" that is essential for a better world and that adults should learn from children. Adora advocates for mutual learning between adults and children and criticizes the limitations and underestimation of children's abilities as the worst manifestations of "adult despotism".

During her lectures, Adora shares that her father used to read Aristotle to her and her sister from an early age. She received her first laptop at the age of 6 and wrote over 300 short stories on it. Since then, Adora dreamt of having her stories published. She is grateful to her parents for supporting her dreams and not discouraging her by telling her she was "still little" and needed to "grow up".

Adora recognizes the one problem with her ideal world, where children are better than adults: children grow up and become adults, just like everyone else. To date, Adora has spoken to various audiences, mostly teachers and students. She willingly shares her experiences, promotes her books, and impresses adults with her maturity. As a prodigious American teenager, Adora's message to the world is clear: "You must listen to us today because we are the leaders of tomorrow."
