Hi, I’m Noemi! Being from the Bay Area, I’ve always been inspired by art and tech growing up. It wasn’t until my second year studying at UC Davis for a biology degree that I realized that I could combine my actual interests, my love for design and hands-on thinking, to study something I genuinely enjoyed and appreciated: Industrial Design. The rest is history! I’m forever grateful for having the opportunity to participate in this program and finding my love for good design, both with physical and digital products. As for my next steps, I am excited to embark on a slightly new design direction by working on digital products as a User Experience Engineer at Cisco Systems after graduation!
