I have made it my purpose to have a social impact on the world and change it through design and creativity.
I believe that design is a powerful tool for social innovation.
From a young age, I made it my mission to give back to society and contribute in any way I can.
While studying design, I was part of a project in social innovation during which I realised that this would be my way of having an impact on the world while contributing to a greater good. Social Innovation feels like my calling because it combines my passions for conducting research, solving social problems and human-centred design. I would like to apply my skills in Design Thinking and Social Design to these problems.
I’m passionate when co-creating in multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural teams, and I believe in the importance of combining different skills, developing ideas and exchanging perspectives with a desire to have social impact.
My Core Strengths
Understand & listen. This skill enables my craft as a team player and fosters team integration.To have a human-centred approach, this is important to apply in projects.
Delivering & explaining. I use storytelling to take people along the process. I also resort to tools like visualisation of information to deliver projects and results.
Decisive & constructive. When there are barriers in the way, I try to overcome them by having an overview of solutions. This provides teams a space where we can move past the obstacle.
Dig deep & explore. I like to think of the challenges from different perspectives, understanding the why, what and how of a specific problem.
