I am a third-year undergraduate student studying at the University of California, Berkeley. I studied English and Computer Science, and now I live this wonderful intersection between technology and humanities through design. There are two lessons that I have learned in life: 1. Learning is a human and emotional experience. 2. No one deserves to look stupid. I have found that the latter is the responsibility of a designer.

I discovered the first lesson through my 9th grade World History teacher, Ms. Fry. Her unconventional but remarkable way of teaching convinced me that anyone could fall in love with any subject if they were just explained as interestingly as Ms. Fry taught it. 
This value now stems at the very core of my designs: to transform complexity into something that can be easily understood by everyone
