Design for Learning


I study psychology which has given me a lot of experience in formal research. My favorite aspect of psych is that I get to work with people, discover how they behave under stimuli, and learn about their wants, needs, and choices. That kind of data is so important in effective design and product/project management, two areas I'm also passionate about. I started a company dedicated to creating effective educational tools for young leaders in Africa solely based off of this data. My goal is to be able to develop my skills in Design for Learning in order to better serve the needs of underprivileged young people so that they can unlock their full potential and they're better equipped to achieve the height of their own dreams.
