Express thoughts about political figures. People around different places wants to know what other people thinks about a certain candidate. Basically, a forum.
Why: Our group wants to educate teenagers about our nation's political figures. Last week, our US history teacher asked the class to name the senators of NYC. Nobody was able to answer the question. When we asked him who were they, even he struggled to answer the question. We concluded that there are many students in our community who are misinformed about our nation's political figures. Therefore, we want to create an app which provides students with factual information about their political figures. Besides, with the recent presidential election coming, our platform could help adults to choose a candidate who has capability to lead our country to a new era of greatness. Also, the candidate they pick in the future will have a direct effect on how the educational system works in our nation. To put it simply, our app will help voters to decide on a political candidate who best suits for the job.
