Mobile App Developer, NotOK
Hannah Lucas is a 17-year-old high school student who co-created the NotOK app. With a passion for mental health advocacy and business, she and her younger brother, Charlie, developed the app, a digital panic button for teens that stores up to five trusted contacts, when she was struggling with depression after being diagnosed with a chronic illness. For NotOK, the siblings were awarded Mental Health America’s mPower Award, the National Alliance on Mental Illness Georgia’s Young Leader Award, and the National Black History Blacks in Tech Award, all in 2018. Lucas is an active member of DECA, the nonprofit student organization that prepares emerging leaders and entrepreneurs in marketing, finance, hospitality, and management.
