About this Project:
We came up with our idea because there are students, teachers, parents, and other school staff who are in need of translation because there are language barriers in terms of speaking, writing, and reading. Our design process started with having a quick sketch of what it’d look like. The app features, style guide, and purpose had evolved due to the amount of effort and research we put in.
Our app translates text to text, text to speech, speech to speech, speech to text, scan to text, and scan to speech, all while being able to translate different dialects and accents, along with many feedback features. There are also add-on features to browsers and calls that automatically translate text or calls.

My mission is to empower our society by designing experiences that are equitable and enjoyable. I thrive on cultural diversity as a catalyst for growth and enjoy collaborating with others. The "emerging" and "alternative" spheres of society excite me just as much as the analytical ones. My work spans between UX, growth, product, brand, and research. Ultimately, I would like to drive positive change for under-resourced communities through thoughtful and inclusive projects.
