About this Project:

The issue is a confusion of new immigrants in a new country. We interviewed many people in our community and discovered many had family members, or they themselves were immigrants to this country, and they expressed a need for a simple app to help with the transition. Our app informs immigrants about the country that is needed to know, like the languages spoken, foods consumed, transportation services and laws.

Makes Me Think

👏 Director of Instructional Design at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
This is an extremely important app for today's world! Not just in the US, but everywhere across the globe there are increases in immigration, and knowing a little bit more about your new country or the country that your new neighbors came from can be really helpful! I definitely agree that understanding the language is important, and I would recommend adding in additional features that people may want to know about, like foods, holidays, and local customs. This is a great start, and I look forward to future versions!

👏 Education Lead at Wix Tomorrow — Emoti-Con Judge
You've picked an incredibly important topic and created a really interesting solution. I think this app would be extremely beneficial to any group immigrating to a new place. I liked that you included "culture," "laws," and "jobs," which I feel are some of the most challenging pieces to navigate as a newcomer in a new country. I wonder if this app could also connect immigrant families to each other? That way, they can learn more about their new home while making new connections and friendships. I'd love to see this app in the real world!

The app has a great concept and can help everybody worldwide, but the figma is sort of confusing without a verbal explanation to it, the layout looks very professional overall.
