"Discovering insights from users' hidden needs and solving design problems is the beauty of UX design. I find joy and excitement in this process."

As an undergraduate, I majored in graphic design and then worked as a UI/UX designer at an agency for various clients for three years after graduation.

While working on various projects, I developed a strong desire to deepen my expertise in the field of UX design. This desire led me to pursue a Master of Fine Arts in UX Design at the College for Creative Studies in Detroit, Michigan.

During my graduate studies, I learned systematic UX design processes and applied this knowledge to projects such as vehicle UX design for the GM Active Lifestyle Driver, the Arab American National Museum Kiosk UX Design Project, and my MFA Thesis-Calmdrive: Intelligent System to Prevent Angry Driving.

Throughout this journey, I realized that discovering insights from users' hidden needs and solving design problems is the beauty of UX design. I find joy and excitement in this process, which is why I love UX design.
