Driven by curiosity, I decided to go to a hackathon (where large groups of students pull all-nighters and create fun projects) to see what all the hype was about! At Hack the North 2016, I delighted in bringing my designs to life through code. I am fascinated by how people think, behave and work, and how technology impacts our daily lives.
My next goal was to eventually get an internship as developer where I continue to practice UX skills.
I eventually interned at Trillium Health Partners as a UX developer. However, teaching myself development was not all rainbows and butterflies. Whenever I came accross a road block I would go to a nearby park helping me take a step back and look at the bigger picture. My time to the park turned into an office step challenge which was a great team building activity.
