I’ve always had a desire to enter into the tech space, just because technology is creating a massive shift in our lives! If we are able to become a part of this shift, we might be able to influence this change for the better! ✨
When I discovered UX/UI, I was actually in the process of learning how to code. Having a lot of creative energy within me, I felt a little bit restricted by the nitty-gritties of development! It just wasn’t for me in the long-term. (Still such a valuable asset that I’m grateful to have!) 😊 So immediately, when I discovered that product design was a path I could take, I hopped on it - and ever since then, I have felt so empowered to learn and grow in this field! It is not only an avenue for creativity, it is also a medium where we can learn to empathize and reach into the human/user dimension of technology! It is such an awesome field to be in - and I’ve also met such great people in it!
I enrolled in the UX/UI Bootcamp from August to November (of 2022) with Zander as my teacher! I wanted to dive-in and build up my foundations, in order to apply my product design learnings to real-life work! We did just that, iterating on The Wim Hof Method mobile app and SoFar Sounds website, in collaboration with other designers, our classmates from all around the world!
Back when I was a student at Memorisely, bootcamp began at 8 am! So, I’d wake up at around 6:30 to go on a short walk before dressing up, preparing my workspace, and getting all my materials ready for class and for co-working days! I’d go to class with Zander, and then prepare for my college classes (as I was a college student still working on my degree!) I would spend my afternoons with friends, making sure I took the time to rest and be present! Still… I would sneak some bits and pieces of reading and video tutorials into my free time. 😜 I was a little obsessed with product design (… still am)!
All graduated from the bootcamp (and from University), I am still learning everyday, and have found that daily routines keep me productive! ❤️
This was a photo of our graduating class! I love all my classmates so much & I miss waking up to their faces thrice a week!
I am currently post-university, just moved out of my college apartment, so I have no specific desk set-up as of the moment. It’s pretty sporadic - sometimes it’s my childhood home’s dining table, a cute cafe, or basically any spot that I can plop my laptop on. 😉
For now, enjoy a snapshot of my university’s library bookshelves ❤️ A place where I spent most of my college life — and a place that I miss so much! 😌
I LOVE Figjam! I discovered Figjam through Memorisely’s UX/UI’s bootcamp, actually! I use it for everything nowadays - for brainstorming, ideating, giving presentations, doing group projects, etc! It’s the best whiteboarding tool, as you can make it as colorful as you like with stickers, post-its, and the like. It’s a boost of seratonin and inspiration everytime I start working/designing! 🤩
Actually… a little bit of my bootcamp case study space ;)
When I design I like to listen to music that sounds colorful & disco-ey! It lifts my spirits and allows the creativity to flow best!
This is my current go-to design playlist! 🤍✨
