National Identity-focused Social Platform

This is a submission for the The AWS Amplify Fullstack TypeScript Challenge

What I Built

General Overview

A social platform that connects people worldwide by celebrating different national identities and cultures. It's perfect for expatriates, global enthusiasts, and anyone interested in exploring cultural diversity. Users can share their traditions, discuss important issues, and learn about various countries in a straightforward and engaging way. This platform aims to build understanding and cooperation among its global community.

Technical Overview

This application is built on top of the starter pack environment that AWS Amplify Gen 2 docs provided. It includes all FOUR INTEGRATIONS but the UI and everything frontend is done from scratch.
