Hello! I am a curious, self-driven product designer who is passionate about emerging technologies, social good, advocating UIUX design across all fields of work, facilitating design education, bridging diverse communities, and being a role model for designers looking to grow in their careers. Learning together is the best way we can drive change. My passion for helping others comes from the guidance my mentors and the design community have given me. Touched by their encouragement and willingness to teach me, I strive to do the same, whether it’s writing about my design experiences, teaching, speaking about design, or empowering teammates in collaborative settings as a leader with a big heart.
