Collaborating as a team is an integral part of having success for any industry out there and there's no doubt that designers need to obtain the necessary soft skills to back up the work they put in, but more importantly, being a designer requires patience, resilience, and strength in developing a product that serves users purpose and change lives because of it.

Q+A

1) How did you become a self-taught designer?

I became a self-taught designer by watching lots of online videos and reading design books while attending CSUEB that started when I first took design courses from my days of community college (where I first learned adobe illustrator and photoshop). In return, that actually expedited my knowledge and made that transition easier to go to the self-taught route along with mentorship from other designers I reached out to. No bootcamp from me!

2) Why did you become a designer?

I always enjoyed the unique, creative side of design in a way where I can conceptualize an open mind approach and expand my thoughts to apply on a blank canvas. I look at being a designer as someone who isn't content and always "adapting to the environment" and not just settle building products to solve problems, but finding purpose in making sure it's sustainable.
