About me

I am a product designer in New York City who is interested in making meaningful connections with people and exploring new places and cultures.

Since I was a teenager, I have been passionate about language learning, so I can hold a conversation in 5 languages: Cantonese, English, French, Japanese, and Mandarin. I also speak the language of UX/UI design.

Based on my experience in sales, operations, and customer service, along with an interest in languages and linguistics, I can easily transfer my skills to UX design, a field dedicated to focusing on users.

I am passionate about the intersection of technology and language. I strive to create better educational products.
