Nice to Meet You ~

My name is Melody and I'm a recent graduate from the University of Washington's Human-Centered Design and Engineering (HCDE) Program. My interest in UX stems from my passion for creation and solving people problems. I love to draw, brainstorm ideas and design delightful, inclusive experiences that put people first. I enjoy making things, seeing ideas come to life and bringing a positive impact.

My degree in engineering helped me to understand what is necessary for building a real world product. Bridging the gap in design and engineering, HCDE provided me the means to create solutions using both problem-solving skills and delicate visual crafts. I hope to use design as a tool to create change and tackle some of the most complex problems existing in our systems today.
