My personal story and how I became a designer

I am passionate about giving back to underserved youth because of my childhood adversities. I understand what it's like to have nobody standing up for you, which is why I choose to be a voice for those who aren't represented. My past obstacles sparked my design career. I started a non-profit for foster youth during my junior year at UCLA because of my early background in foster care. I fell in love with designing for my non-profit because problem solving requires principles of empathy and inclusivity — both of which I lacked growing up. I saw design as my opportunity to fill those gaps I grew up with and inspire brighter futures for people. This why I pursued a design career, and the rest is history.
