Hello fellow DECO3850-ers!! My name is Michelle and I am in my third year of pursuing a Bachelor of Information Technology with a focus in User Experience Design.

I think I am a very organised and hardworking person. I have come to appreciate a good challenge and, as such, am always willing to put in the hard yards to see my work (and my team's!!) come to life.

I don't really know what to expect from the course as I have heard so much about it. In fact, I think one thing I have learnt in DECO3850 so far is not to expect anything. I think preconceived expectations can limit the creativity, skills and design prospects that this course facilitates and, as I am really hoping for a challenge, I have no expectations. I do, however, want to expand my skillset - especially in more physical facets (woodwork, laser cutting, metalwork etc). I want to push myself to develop something innovative and novel. I want to improve my design outlook - to reimagine the world around me so as to find ways to improve it.

Hopefully DECO3850 can help me achieve that.
