This is me

At the moment I am studying master in Interaction design at Umeå Institute of Design. Before coming here I've been interning at Interactive Institute with sustainability projects which is something I really aspire for. And at Designit working with ux- and service design.

 

People, their stories and learning together with others inspires me. I believe that great design involves all stakeholders and by having the user in the center, include and involve them in the process we can create solutions that make an impact and actually solve the real problems.
