I’m from Russia, Moscow.

3 months ago, I moved to Spain but dream about relocating to Toronto, Canada.

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

Once I met my friend who shared with me his path as a UX designer. I knew nothing about this field before. Then I realised that every day I use the apps and sites created by designers from around the world, and Since then, I have been considering refocusing my career to digital design.

I also subscribed to Zanders and Memorisely's Instagram pages. I admired him, and his team can do things supa cool and supa fast, and I knew exactly that I wanted to do it the same way - good quality, supa fast. So I was thinking of how exciting is that to become a UX/UI Designer and how I want to become a part of a world full of creativity. All of these inspires me to sign up to Memorisely UX/UI Bootcamp, I just felt that it can change my life in the incredible digital design world.

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

I enrolled in the UX/UI Bootcamp. From my point of view, it’s an excellent start to understand and learn how to implement different techniques to create stunning products.

What will a typical day look like for you as a student?

I work full time 5/2, and after it, I study with other designers worldwide.

Two times a week, we have evening classes at 4 GMT - 6 pm local time. We also have a co-working session and a workshop day once a week.

I have a teammate. After classes, we discuss our tasks and plan how to implement them.

We even have yoga classes which I really would like to join (I’m not an early bird, so it’s cool that we have yoga, both in the morning and in the evening).

Love to grab some coffee somewhere in between 10 mins break of main classes.

What is your current workspace setup?

Unfortunately, I don't have a constant workspace now, but I can share how it looked before.

As for now, I work everywhere, where I can find coffee and wifi.
