why do you design?
because our world is tough to understand.
When I was in Kindergarten, I'd replay China's ShenZhou Six blasting off over and over. Since then, I’ve wanted to be an astronaut. As I pursued the goal, I couldn't help but focus on the number of disasters in space exploration caused by misinformation. So I asked myself, what can I do to alleviate that?
I chose Systems Design Engineering at the University of Waterloo because of the opportunities in human factors psychology and its applications, not knowing I'd stumble across digital product design.
I'm also a huge advocate for the design community. I lead UW/UX - the University of Waterloo's first and only UX club, connecting students to the industry through events and workshops.
Looking forward, I want to create solutions that help our world understand itself. I want to make complex tools not so complex anymore. It might be a lofty goal, but after all, even my five-year-old self imagined being among the stars.
