Hey, I'm Vanessa! ✨

I'm an aspiring UX designer and Architectural Engineering student at the University of Waterloo. I have a wide variety of interests, including architecture and UI/UX design, as well as transportation and urban planning.

In Fall 2020, I discovered UI/UX design and worked @ Thomson Reuters Labs (in the Communitech Hub) as a visual designer & program coordinator. In Spring 2021, I worked as a UX Analyst @ Maple Leaf Foods and I am now looking for a design internship for Winter 2022!
