Hi there! My name is Mary and I love music, tech, travel, great coffee, and weird socks! I have worked in marketing in the tech industry over the last two years after graduating from university in 2014. I am a huge fan of exploring and adventuring and lived in Vienna and Hong Kong during my degree.

I’m an avid believer in gaining experiences, challenging myself, and continuously learning. My classic go-to quote is “every experience is a stitch in the fabric of your character” by Gary Clausing. With this course, I’m really excited to have an outlet where I can unleash my creative potential and develop my brand and portfolio. I also look forward to meeting like-minded people and learn from industry experts as well as my course peers. My goal over the next 10 weeks is to build upon the marketing competencies I have developed in my education and career. I want to strengthen my design skills and expand my knowledge in Photoshop, visual design theory, app design and prototyping.

I’m thrilled to be a Summer Brand Ambassador at BrainStation and look forward to sharing my experience and journey as I learn about the world of UI Design!
