On UXSG
How did you learn about UXSG?

Found out about UXSG when I was an intern at UX Consulting.The very first meetup i attended was with a purpose and that purpose was actually just to collect UX books to read from Raven. After that meetup, it got me really intrigued – Who are these people? What are they talking about? What/Who is this community for? I was just as naive as any other student can get back then, so, i decided to get myself involved in the community to understand a lil bit more.

 

What made you volunteer for the UXSG Conference this year?

The design process and experience from the previous conference made me come back for the second time. It’s definitely a great platform to learn and grow especially with like-minded people in the community who are never stingy with their knowledge sharing. Feels like home, so I’m not getting out of this home! It’s also about time I contribute back to the community as much as I can.

 

How has the journey been?

I won’t deny that there were some down times but that’s the thing, it’s the down times that makes the whole journey even more precious and that’s where you learn.

At a Personal Level
What are your personal quirks?

Boots! Ankle cut, high cut, platform; all day everyday! I’d like to think that it protects my feet more than other types of shoes. And i have about 5 different spectacle frames (with degree) to suit my ever changing mood for the day.

 

Is there any words of advice or quotes you live by?

You win some, you lose some.
Learn to feel content, otherwise it’s never enough.
