MY JOURNEY TO UX

My particular interest in user experience was sparked while taking the Interaction and Design elective at Columbia University. In the course, I familiarized myself with systemized user research methodologies and have since been interested in designing for digital systems.

The incentive that convinced me to turn toward the data-related design field was my work experiences in real estate industry after graduation, during which I created the digital showcases for final project deliverables. Struck by how affective the presentations were to the viewers, I decided to become a designer using emerging technologies to reach out better to people.

With my degree here at the University of Toronto, I hope to develop further a user-centered perspective to create meaningful digital experience with empathy.
