When empathy and creativity are a person's core nature, what better career choice could anyone make than getting in to UX.

I was born in an orthodoxed South Indian family, where women were broomed to be good homemakes. We were trained to be creative in our thoughts, understand and cater to the needs of every family member and trying to find a solution for each of their problems and needs. Empathy, creativity, team work, multitasking and commitment were the core skills that were developed as we grew to keep the family in sync and progress. Never did I guess these skills of a homemaker would take me ahead with my career.

Roopa has been an excellent team member to work with. We had a very short association, yet she managed to leave a strong impression with the assignment at hand. She worked relentlessly for customer satisfaction with a very demanding client. She has been able to deliver on multiple focus areas such as accessibility, feature delivery on both interaction and visual designs, team guidance on design language setting, etc. The team benefited a lot due to her delivery and due to the process that she helped settle with the client. Thanks Roopa and wish you success in all your endeavors!
