I graduated from Augsburg University during 2019-2020. I became fascinated with UX and UI in two distinct ways. UX came across me before the epidemic when I attended events for people interested in UX design. I was taking a Marketing Research course at the time, although I enjoyed it. It could not compare to the excitement I got from doing User Research exercises. I was able to relate my skills and personality closer to the field of UX as a pose to Marketing.
UI became of interest through the books I would buy outside of my Graphic Design classes. It was like Graphic Design but with a different feel. I think the UI designer can control and maneuver through various tools. I am a person who thrives by being challenged, is very curious about my learning style, and is an empath at heart.
