2023 was a great year for me. I achieved a significant milestone by earning my MFA in Design Technology. This transition from Computer Science to Design was a major leap for me. While my peers admired my ambition, they also viewed it as unconventional and foolhardy.( I come from India where Computer Science Engineers are worshipped). However, I was determined to challenge stereotypes and navigate through unfamiliar territory. Navigating the unpredictable waters, defying stereotypes, and pushing my limits daily, I successfully earned my Design degree and felt incredibly joyful. Although the illusion of Master graduates landing a job as soon as they graduate broke pretty quickly.
As a Product Designer, I specialize in bridging the gap between design and development, and I am eager to break into the industry. I have a ton of Part-time experience. I am new to Elpha and excited to expand my job search and connect with like-minded women.
