Three Inspiring Distinguished Winners

The three Distinguished Winners, Elena Galluzzo, Dezmond Blair, and Jawaher Shaman, all drew inspiration from their families and hope their apps will make a positive impact on people’s lives as wells.

  • Care Capsule by Elena Galluzzo: Designed using Apple’s machine learning framework, this all-in-one chatbot helps elderly people track their medication, connect with their community, and detect loneliness or depression. Elena drew inspiration from her grandmother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease.
  • MTB XTREME by Dezmond Blair: This app helps mountain bikers view 360-degree trails around them. Dezmond found inspiration from his brother.
  • My Child by Jawaher Shaman: Hailing from Saudi Arabia, Jawaher built this app to help people who struggle with speaking. It slows down speech and allows for more efficient communication. The app uses AVFAudio to add sound. Jawaher’s inspiration came from her grandfather and father, who both have speaking difficulties.

Conclusion

The winners of the Apple Swift Student Challenge have the chance to visit Apple Park and attend the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC), where they can interact with creators from all over the world. These 50 Distinguished Winners also receive a one-year membership in the Apple Developer Program, a voucher for an App Development with Swift certification exam, and a special gift from Apple.
