Hey, you found me!
My name is Shantia and I'm a 26-year-old Digital Content Strategist from Toronto, Canada.
I started my UX/UI career by actually pursuing journalism, which wasn’t intentional but at the time, has taught me so much about human interactions, especially interactions involving design, communication and technology.
I later discovered my true passion was solving problems through accessible design!
Don't get me wrong I still love writing, but advocating for better and accessible design is my true calling.
Having previous experience with journalism has taught me transferable skills that I can use with confidence.
I transitioned to a career in UX/UI because naturally, I am venturesome and compassionate and will design for users to have experiences that are creative, fascinating and stress-free.
I aim to be a designer-advocate who puts people first, while also providing satisfaction to companies looking to bring users these experiences.
When I'm not thinking about design or daydreaming of my next solo trip, I like to spend my time reading, exploring the city, working on my tennis skills, and binge-watching my favourite shows!
I can't wait to share my journey with you,
My Current Monthly Faves
My favourite place at the moment is this secret beach I found in Mimico. There's something about a secluded beachfront that can really help me relax at the end of a busy week.
My favourite app/website this month is Spotify! Besides listening to a bunch of my favourite artists, I love how Spotify is constantly innovating the way we consume music and podcasts! The AI DJ is my favourite feature.
