My winding academia journey…

I embarked on my academic journey as a business major. I changed my major twice later on, all of them are "realistic" majors.

However, my passion for creativity has always burned bright. Ever since primary school, I've been drawn to the art of drawing. Watching animations and sketching manga. There came a moment when I decided to pursue what truly brings me joy, leading me to enroll in a design class. That decision reshaped my career trajectory forever.

After switching to the Design department, I immersed myself in a diverse curriculum that included graphic design, furniture design, interaction design, and even theater stage design classes, each adding a new hue to my palette of skills.

My new life @SCAD…

Post-graduation, I spent a year working remotely due to the pandemic, which sparked my decision to specialize further in design by attending art school.

In the summer of 2022, I embarked on a solo 40-hour drive from California to Georgia to start my journey as a master's student in Service Design at Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD).

SCAD's teaching style was a whole new world compared to UC Davis, with a strong emphasis on group projects and numerous presentations. My first year was challenging, but it significantly bolstered my confidence.

Become a product designer|service designer…

Returning to school has been incredibly rewarding; I feel like a sponge, soaking up knowledge every day.

I landed a product design internship at a county government's transportation department in summer 2023, where I found true enjoyment in my work.

As I approach graduation, I'm more determined than ever to become a product designer, aiming to design with a broader scope in mind.

I have a passion for junk journaling, watercolor painting, and photography. I'd describe myself as someone who "sees the beauty in the world".
