Hi all! I’m new here (both on UX Mastery and in the UX world!)
Where in the world are you?
Vancouver, Canada by way of the UK and Australia
What stage of your career are you at?
I’m changing careers from a completely unrelated field (Executive Assistant in Corporate offices) and just about finished an Immersive UX Course with CareerFoundry - so the newest of newbies and its very scary! But I’m so passionate about what I’m learning and keen to make the world a better place with design!
What are you current challenges?
My biggest challenge is imposter syndrome and self-doubt, having never worked in the UX/Tech/Design fields before. I’m really trying to rid myself of it before I start looking for my first UX Design role, as I don’t want it to hinder my jobhunt
What aspect/s of UX are passionate about?
User Research. I love discussing insights with my mentor, “I had no idea people felt that way!”. Learning about people and behaviours is my fave thing in general. People can really inspire, surprise and test you!
Cats or dogs?
Used to be cats, but now its dogs. I don’t have either though
Looking forward to reading through these forums and asking questions about this awesome field!
