Transitioning from Kinesiology to UX Design
What I loved most about Kinesiology was that it was multidisciplinary. I learned about human psychology & behaviour, nutrition, and sports in society. During my studies, I became keen on my course, Research Methods. I was allowed to creatively formulate a proposal that will benefit a specific group in society by using evidence-based research. Like UX, it is also multidisciplinary with various sectors under its umbrella. I connect these two identities by taking a human-centered approach when facing challenges.
I re-evaluated what I wanted to pursue and that was UX. I have always had a curious personality, been a visual learner and problem solver, I thought it was the perfect match. This journey has allowed me to look at approaches from different angles.
