UX Bootcamp — 2022 Fall Cohort
I am a queer Vietnamese American born and raised in the Bay Area! I am pursuing a career in design because my interests and passions would align much more closely than my current occupation.
I currently work as a Baker, and study Classic Civilizations and Philosophy at the University of Toronto. In my free time I enjoy writing and painting- I've realized how enjoyable being able to express my creativity is.
I am currently learning full-stack software development and working on freelance projects. I have a Master's degree in Business Management/Project Management/Marketing. I hope to add UX design to my toolbelt. My goal is to transfer into tech by the beginning of 2023. I am passionate about yoga, books, traveling, and naps.
