What I'm Looking For ~~
For the past years, I have focused most of my energy on working with small businesses and non-profits. Most notably this past summer, I was brought on as a project coordinator and in-house designer at the Vancouver Chinatown Foundation (VCF), where I got to work in the community that raised my uncle, grandmother, and great-grandmother.
Working at the VCF was transformational for me, as it should me what a core group of caring people could do to help shape a community. It made me more steadfast in my desire to do meaningful work that brings people together.
That is why this summer, I am looking for an internship that will broaden my knowledge on what it is like to design for communities and people in need. Specifically, I want to expand my horizons and get more experience in UX Design with a firm whose mission is to help people achieve their goals – whether it be in non-profit or corporate environments.
