Upon hearing about her friend’s uncle’s struggle with eye misalignment and facial paralysis after brain surgery, she put her programming talent to work.

Asmi Jain, a resident of Indore, developed an app as part of the WWDC 2023 challenge (Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference challenge) held annually. Students around the world participated in this initiative, using the Swift coding language to create an original app playground. Apple recognized an increased number of winners this year, with 375 students receiving recognition, up from the usual 350, to promote more inclusion and recognition.

According to a press release, Asmi Jain stated that creating an app that would positively impact people’s lives was crucial to him. He plans on seeking feedback to ensure the app meets user requirements and is easy to navigate, after which it will be released on the App Store. Ultimately, Jain’s goal is to enhance the muscles in the face and transform the app into a credible therapeutic tool, enabling people to use it at their own pace, just like his friend’s uncle.

Jain’s propensity to employ coding to address healthcare issues originated from years of volunteering to help society. She and her fellow students established a forum at her university to provide a support system for peers to overcome coding obstacles.

Asmi Jain Says, “Being part of something bigger motivates and drives me to do better. Coding allows me to create and help my friends and the community, empowering me with a sense of independence.”
