Hi there! This is Michelle wavin' at you from the Pacific NorthwestšŸŒŠ
An Interaction Designer & Digital Art Enthusiast madeĀ in a rainy mid-summer's Beijing; Exported to England and New York City; Currently settledĀ in Vancouver, BC as her natural habitatšŸƒā€‹ā€‹ā€‹ā€‹ā€‹ā€‹ā€‹

Hey there! šŸ‘‹This is Michelle!
Growing up in a tech-savvy family with my engineer parents, I was always the "slow kid" who can't fix the printer or can only sit asideĀ watching my mom assembleĀ a PC. ThisĀ motivates me to bring complex technologies to more people in anĀ approachable way, asĀ a product and user experience designer :)Ā 

Previously, I internedĀ atĀ LinkedIn China,Ā Microsoft Vancouver,Ā andĀ NGX Interactive,Ā where I graspedĀ the essence ofĀ teamwork, cross-teamĀ collaboration, and take the full ownership of my designs. Right now, you'll find me shaping the product together with the team at JobGet Inc and whatifi.io! Oh, check out my 100-day Design Challenge and other side projects (Branding / Illustrations)Ā onĀ Behance!

Along my design journey,Ā I have so many things that I wish I could have someone told me before. So I'm building a student - alumniĀ mentorship community for my school, Emily Carr Univ. of Art + Design, to help more students with their early design careers.

It's been a great pleasure to meet youĀ :) !
