-I am just now trying to dip my toes into the vast ocean that is UX Design. I am looking around, trying to find the best and most productive ways to get started.
-My challenge is that it seems like the best way to get started in UX is by taking a class of some sort. A lot of the classes such as General Assembly are very expensive. Considering I just graduated college with a degree and the price of a 6 month class is almost the same as one year of college, I have a hard time justifying the decision to attend the programs. There seems to be a lot of different aspects to UX so it’s difficult to find affordable resources for everything that I would need to start learning.
-Being an economics major which is a social science, I love learning about how people react to different situations and creating theories of how others will act based on it. I also like the idea of working with teams, and creating strategies intended to increase productivity and ease of use for end users therefore optimizing that product and business. I love people, I love being creative, and I love the idea of helping the world continue to move in a smooth rotation.
-I am definitely a dog person, but kittens are pretty cute.
Excited to learn and grow with you all!
