Design has great potential to overcome injustices to human rights, but only when the designer's ego is removed from their work. When I am designing for the purpose of communication, I try to reject my personal opinions of what makes design "good" or "bad" and focus on whether or not the design is serving its purpose. Participatory design has proven to be a great way for designers to move in this direction and I hope to practice it more at my future places of work and in my research.

I am very much interested in elevating voices from marginalized communities such as people of color, LGBTQ+ people, disabled people, lower class people, immigrants and women. I would love to work with a team that builds safe spaces for these individuals to express their stories and identity through music and art.
