How did College change your life? My life has changed because I am now working as a User Experience Designer doing what I love everyday. I don’t feel like I’m going to work every morning and that feeling is worth all the hard work I put in at college.

What has been the highlight of your career to date?  The highlight of my career so far — was being sent to Miami recently to talk to users and demo our cloud based application. I learnt a lot about how users use our software and where we can improve. As a user experience designer, that first hand knowledge is invaluable.

When did you stop feeling like a student and start feeling like a professional in training? I felt like a professional in training immediately after college as I was employed right away. The amount of interest I received from employers was amazing and helped build a confidence I never had before.
