Bio

I grew up enjoying the arts and all things creative, but never found myself considering it as a career path. Due to this, I studied and pursued Psychology in my undergraduate career and an additional three years in psychological research. However, after struggling to fit into the academia mold all those years, I finally realized that it was not a match for me. Thus began my career shift into the Graphic Design. I am motivated and passionate about design and excited to see where it takes me.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

1. What's the most courageous thing you've ever done?

During the pandemic, I decided to launch a ceramic shop showcasing pieces I have made. I’ve practiced ceramics only for a couple of years so I was apprehensive about starting an online shop. However, the belief in my mission and vision led me to take the leap and go for it.

2. How are creativity and innovation related?

Both creativity and innovation are about new and exciting ideas coming to life. They involve a similar form of thinking—being able to think outside the box to create different solutions.

3. Why do companies need clarity and creativity?

Companies need clarity in order to have direction. If they do not, then they will not know what the company stands for or who their customers would be. There would be no clear starting point without clarity. Creativity allows companies to be more open-minded and to be able to explore new ideas and options. Without creativity, I imagine a company would be stuck in old-fashioned ideals while the world moves on without them. Ultimately, companies need both clarity and creativity in order to grow.

4. You have 30 minutes of free time. What do you do with it?

I would spend some time brewing my favorite Oolong tea in my teapot. The act of brewing and drinking tea provides calmness. I would also read a book or look through a magazine to allow myself to delve into a new perspective.

5. What is one risky and bold goal in life you have? Or, if you could dedicate your life to solving one problem, what would it be?

One goal I have in life is to move the countryside of a foreign country and delve into my craft. I would hope to build my own ceramic studio to enjoy creating different pieces and being immersed with the process.

6. Explain your creative process

My creative process starts with either inspiration or research. Then, I delve into creating sketches or storyboards of the work I envision and start creating after. If I am able to, I try to get feedback and use the feedback to improve.

7. What is the best advice that you have been given?

Fake it till you make it. This statement can seem insincere; however, it helped me to realize that everyone is simply trying their best with what they have and ultimately confidence is key. It was encouraging to hear that if you put in the effort that you will get where you want to eventually.

8. What is your definition of creativity?

To me, creativity is about being myself. It is a value I have always held onto and plays a big role in my identity. It is about expressing yourself and thinking of unique solutions.

9. What 10 songs are on your favorite playlist right now?

1) Leave The Door Open by Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak, 2) Rainforest by Noname, 3) Lost One Erangerang, 4) Good Day by Bombay Bicycle Club, 5) I Found My Smile Again by D’Angelo, 6) I Know Alone by HAIM, 7) White Gloves by Khruangbin, 8) Coffee by Sylvan Esso, 9) Youth by Glass Animals, 10) From The Sun by Unknown Mortal Orchestra

10. How do you want people to remember you?

I want people to remember me as a kind-hearted person with her own unique charm.
