CFSD graduate Josh Tint created a free resource for gender questioning people; it collects no data, has no ads, and is intended to create a safe space to help others questioning their gender identity. It’s called Discover Me Name Finder. It also is the winner of Apple’s 2022 Swift Student Challenge. “I wanted to try and create something that would allow you to interactively explore that in a safe and discreet but also very calming and low pressure way,” he says.

CFSD graduate Josh Tint was selected from among more than 350 students from 40 countries as one of three 2022 challenge winners in Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference. For his winning submission, Tint designed an app that enables people who are questioning their gender identity to try different pronouns.

The 19-year-old from Tucson, Arizona said, “I’ve questioned my gender identity and so I know there aren’t many resources out there to help with that. So I wanted to try to build a tool that I thought was more applicable to my experience and could help others, too. I wanted my app to help tell a story.”
