My journey so far...

I started the professional journey as a software developer. Being an empathetic problem solver, looking at problems from people's point of view comes naturally to me. Stepping into UX was an intuitive progression. With the incredible support of my organization, I was able to learn on the job and make the switch UX design. As a continuous learner, I wanted to learn more and push the limits of what I knew. And that brought me to Master of Information program at the University of Toronto.
