💪Skills and Strengths
My Neuro-exceptional talent
I love UX research, design, and strategy because it combines analytical thinking with creative thinking as well as utilizes my hyper empathetic nature to focus on solving problems for people. I've always gravitated towards jobs where I help people, and in UX if we do the appropriate research and talk to users, we can literally change their experiences for the better.
