Hear From Our Members

“My educational background is Architecture, so I have some experience in understanding visual design and communications. However, my design role in H4I adapted to understanding more UX design, which has overlapping concepts with architecture. I also had to learn to work with computer science/ software engineering students, which have been a lot of fun collaborating because the people in H4I are all very sweet people. I really enjoy working with interdisciplinary teams that share the same values as me, so creating services for local community members with the H4I team has been wonderful!”
