About Me

#EFD#ADHD#Sequencing Disorder

I am an open person who needs direction to stay on track. Ideas come to me naturally and communication with people is one of my strengths. With my background in design, finding out how to connect with people and how I can help them in any way is a large focus. Within my background itself, I am multicultural and with this it has helped me realize that there is a culturally acceptable presence to design and how it is then incorporated in designing for many different people with differences in intersectionality. I like acknowledging that people are different from each other and I enjoy using that in my design to create something personal to them. Some of my creative inspirations are Lauren Faust, Dana Terrace, Iginio Straffi, and Monty Oum.

Skills & Strengths

Neuroexceptional Talents

I can hone in on things that really stand out to me, and I enjoy researching about them! When something is impactful enough to stand out in my memories, that’s big because it's hard for me to retain information. I take in a lot of information at a time, and I come up with ideas and can make connections to them, so when one sticks out to me, it's very impactful.Communicating with others, especially other neurodivergent people, comes easily to me. I love broadening my horizons by meeting and exchanging knowledge and experiences with others! Communicating and interacting with different people gives me new inspiration and viewpoints for different ideas.I did the Clifton Strengths Test for Beacon in my freshman year and received Woo, Individualization, Developer, Positivity, Strategic, as my top 5. I did the High 5 Test on May 27 2022 afterwards because I have been told that usually results don't change much over the years, but I wanted to see for myself because I felt like I had. On High 5 I received Brainstormer, Empathizer, Believer, Coach, and Philomath. I can constantly jump to new ideas.Moral compassNumerous interests
