My name is Hashim, 32 years old from sunny London England.
I’m at a crossroad in my professional career where I’ve been working in finance for 6 years.
A member in my extended family is a UX researcher and I was overwhelmed by the salary she is currently earning in the city. But most importantly than that; she finds her job fun and plays around with lots of different tech.
Although my academic discipline is German And Business Management, I have a natural inclination towards tech and web-design. I’m a self taught Illustrator user, love photography and I love analysing data. Ask me to problem solve and I’ll get to it right away. I’m a creative thinker by heart.
I’m thinking about pursuing a masters programme in UX and having watched different youtube channels and doing my own research, I think UX could be a perfect match for me.
I love the idea of becoming a researcher; that go-to guy who would be able to devote time in competitor analysis, analysing data and getting down to client expectations and requirements.
I speak fluent German and would love to use my secondary language skills as an advantage if there is any.
I would be over the moon for any of you guys to provide me with good or bad feedback and what steps you would recommend me worth taking.
Lastly, what’s the key difference between visual and interaction design?
Thanks for reading,
