Awards 🏆

Apple WWDC 2022 Swift Student Challenge Winner
In 2022, I won the challenge for the second time and this year I was able to achieve an even bigger dream and visit Apple Park in Cupertino. My challenge was about an athletic robot in AR which can make you physical exercise. In addition, the robot can analyze your movements with a guided computer vision algorithm and tell you what to improve.

In 2021, I won the challenge thanks to an AR creation. Its name is Brass Band Discovery. The goal was to introduce the world of the brass band and its particular instruments by offering an AR experience. I had the incredible opportunity to present my work to Tim Cook at the Steve Jobs Theater.
