Hi, I am Nicole! 👋

A product designer that creates for change.

I am double majoring in Arts & Humanities and Computer Science at Minerva University, where I study in 7 different countries around the world for the next 4 years.

👩🏻‍💻 My overarching mission is to use design to empower people. I like to observe problems and design solutions that address people’s needs. I enjoy the stage in the process where I get to talk to people and apply their feelings to my next iterations.

📚 I value education in my design projects. I believe that education opportunities is key youth’s development. As I have been personally impacted by the education opportunities I received in life, I give special focus to projects that improve learning experiences.
