I started out with Bachelors in Art & Design and went on to continue my education with a CEMS Masters in International Manager. This led me to start my career in Marketing, where I first came across the expression “User Experience Design” and lightbulb went on in my head. “Thats the job I want.” I thought to myself. I researched, took free online UX courses, attended a 10 Week General Assembly course and taught myself the basics of HTML and CSS and then went on to find a job as a Requirements Engineer. It was one step closer to UX and allowed me to move into the realm of digital products. In this role I went on to apply all that I had taught myself in UX and soon realised I did not have to be a UX designer to be doing UX in my Job. Since then I been a Product Manager in a Venture builder and Product Owner at parcelLab and apply UX principles in my day to day wherever I can. My approach: it doesn’t matter where I work or what my job title is, my goal is to be a UX advocate and help others understand the value of UX.
