I have always wanted to become a designer, hence studied architecture
for my first degree. Throughout my studies I have taken part in design
cources and special programs that required experimentation and prototyping
of designed products and materials.
After graduation, the set of skills i developed as a student and my entrepreneurial
passion helped me co-establish a “Design +” startup company
where I aquired immense organizational and management skills. Moreover,
I developed my entrepreneurial mindset and creativity in design
while working around young designers like myself. This brought me to
RIT, one of the most celebrated Industrial design schools in the world, to
master the art and science of designing products and building them,
Industrial Design.
In the near future, I see myself impacting the world positively and taking
part in diverse design challenges, as I am comfortable working through
multiple scales. As a designer, re-making everyday-use-products
efficient, durable and aesthetically pleasing as well as being part of
innovations for better life is my ambition.
