Rahil Thanawala

Fishers, Indiana

Rahil Thanawala, 17, of Fishers, Ind., a junior at Fishers High School, is the founder of “TheSnapLink,” a nonprofit that helps people with Alzheimer’s disease manage memory loss through a personalized picture puzzle app. Inspired by his experience helping his grandmother recognize her loved ones using picture puzzles, Rahil solicited the help of adults and healthcare institutions to learn the science behind the disease and the best ways to market the app.
