Stay Humble, Hustle Hard

 

I think the most important qualities any designer can posses are passion 🔥and curiosity 👀. If you have this, no tool or location can stop you from achieving your aspirations.
In fact, I’ve learnt all that I have in UX Design as a Chemical Engineering Major (Yes, not design) because of the same.

Armed with these and just the right amount of hustling 💪🏽, I love taking on the challenge of crafting an inclusive 🌈, impactful solution.
