What have you been up to since YWLC?
Upon graduating from YWLC, I served as the President of the Global Studies Academy and I continued my involvement with UNICEF USA, where I was appointed Regional Lead upon moving to Austin, TX to attend the University of Texas at Austin, where I am majoring in Business and Design! During my first semester of college, as a part of Texas Convergent, I collaborated with students across majors at UT to create SleepSafe, an Internet of Things (IoT) device that detects seizures during sleep and alerts emergency services to help individuals with epilepsy sleep with security. SleepSafe was pitched on the annual TX Convergent Demo Day and awarded Best Overall in Business, Design, and Technology! Upon graduation, I hope to use my education in Business and Design to provide strategy and design direction to companies and organizations to improve products and user experiences. In 5 years, I see myself creating human-centered products and experiences at the intersection of business, design, and technology. I hope to be using my education and skills in the service of others and use my passion for human-centered design and innovation to be a positive catalyst for change.
