Indian Girl Asmi Jain wins at WWDC23 Swift Student Challenge
Asmi Jain’s winning entry in the Swift Student Challenge at WWDC23 is an eye-tracking playground that uses eye movements to train eye muscles.
Jain hopes to make the software user-friendly and functional before launching it on the software Store, inspired by her friend’s uncle and driven by a desire to positively touch others with various eye diseases.
Her ultimate goal is to improve the app so that it can strengthen all face muscles and be used as a therapeutic tool.
Jain’s interest in using coding to solve healthcare problems derives from her volunteer work and the creation of a supportive coding forum at her institution. Jain finds motivation and joy in her coding activities by creating meaningful solutions for others.
Regarding this, Asmi Jain, Student at Medi-Caps University, Indore said,
It was important for me to create an app playground that could positively impact the lives of people like him. My next goal is to get feedback and make sure it’s effective and user-friendly, and then release it on the App Store. Ultimately, I want to expand it so that it helps strengthen all of the muscles in the face, and I hope it can one day serve as a therapy tool that people like my friend’s uncle can use at their own pace.
When you feel as though you’re part of something bigger, it motivates you and drives you to do better. Coding lets me create things that help my friends and my community. And it gives me a sense of independence that is very empowering.
