Tell us about your journey to where you are today
UX design attracted me because of how each decision was rooted in research. Taking the dive into this field, I enrolled in Coursera classes, and furthered my studies through Designlab's UX bootcamp. While I learned a lot through my 4 projects with Designlab, I am now contributing to World IA Day to continue building my UX research and design skills.
Tell us about why you're interested in the apprentice program
The apprenticeship program allows me to improve my skills while designing collaboratively in a constrained scenario. Since my project is focused around World IA Day, I'm certain I will learn a lot about IA along the way. Working on this project will also give me the opportunity to connect with many others involved in WIAD's community.
