About Me

UX/UI designer with experience in workshop facilitation focusing on holding a safe space and breaking down information concisely for a variety of audiences while using empathy to put herself in other people shoes. The listening skills and ability to ask follow-up questions supports understanding the full scope of the problem.

Studied UX Design for 10 months and practising it since on a day-to-day basis. My passion for the users shows through conducting interviews and usability test where I focus on their struggles, needs and expectations. During my free time, I like to improve my skills by volunteering for various projects and reaching for UX literature.

In addition, I have many years of experience working in various places but always in contact with people. My skills involve stakeholder management, delivering the best customer service and using my analytic mind to make informed decisions at every step of the way.
