I was a listener, and while I’ve always believed this to be one of my biggest weaknesses, I’ve come to learn that listening is really what’s helped me grow in this ever-changing and ever-advancing industry. As a designer, my job isn’t to come up with a solution that’s never been done before—It’s to listen, to empathize, and to make decisions for those whose voices need to be heard.
My name is Carol—I’m a designer and Systems Design Engineering student at the University of Waterloo. I planted my seeds in design as a freshman when I landed my first internship as a UI/UX designer. Despite my lack of skill and experience, my passion for solving problems at the human level was what really propelled me into this field. Though I may not know exactly where I see myself designing in the next couple of terms, I do know that I love talking, working, and collaborating with people.
Why? Because everyone has something special and valuable to bring to the table ♥️
