Anuv Gupta, Class of '14 

Anuv and two of his classmates from St. Francis created an app called Peer2Peer that won the 2016 Congressional App Challenge for California's 18th congressional district. The app connects students with other students for peer homework help. The team is heading to Washington D.C. in April for the #HouseOfCode reception.
