Where are you from and/or where are you based as a Memorisely student?

I’m Nigerian and I live in Lagos, Nigeria.

What inspired you to pursue UX/UI and become a designer?

I’ve always been interested in art and design and have been drawing since I was about 4 or 5. When I went to Uni, I majored in Computer Science and discovered Product Design in my second year. It felt like the perfect amalgamation of my interests and skills so I decided that was what I wanted to do with my career.

Which Bootcamp did you choose to enroll in, and why?

I chose the Accessibility bootcamp because it’s not something that considered for a lot of products on this side of the world. There are also few mandates from the Government to implement accessible solutions, and where there are, there’s very little enforcement. I wanted to learn how to create more accessible products so that fewer people feel excluded.

What's it like to be a student in Memorisely's virtual classroom?

It is a no pressure learning environment and it feels like the content provided and the instructors are crafted to create the best possible understanding of what’s being taught.

What has been your favorite part of Bootcamp so far? What's one learning that has surprised you in Bootcamp?

Getting to use Figjam in a different and more engaging way.
