Hey yay! I’m Mika!
I am seeking a full-time UX/ Product opportunity!
I find true happiness when I am designing. I strive to exceed expectations in everything I do as a designer - working hard to repay my luckiness of doing my dream job.
My mixed background of both design and engineering enables me to follow the rational design process to solve problems visually. I enjoy partnering with PMs and Engs to make design decisions that help the team to find the best way forward. I believe that striving for simplicity makes me a better designer.
Before pivoting into product design, I learned drawing for 6+ years, studied automobile design at college, and worked on art installation works. The common thread throughout is my passion for creating something to bring people happiness, whether I am crafting illustrations or shipping a product.
I treasure every moment in my life:
New Apps: I download many new interesting apps every week. Trying them and keeping the best ones, I have more than 200 apps on my phone now.
Drawing: I have received professional art training for 6 years. Drawing is a good way for me to record and express my inner feelings.
Marathon: I was one of the youngest runner in Beijing International Marathon 2015. I keep running 50km a week and adapt vegetarian diet to prepare for my next marathon race!
Roller Skating: Skating on campus at night with my friends makes me feel like I am the king of the world :p
Diving: Directed by Olympic diving coach, I jumped from 10m platform into water. After that, I feel like I will never be afraid of anything.
Traveling: Traveling alone gives me an opportunity to become a stranger in a totally different world and go through other people's life stories.
Keeping a diary: I have been keeping my diary by notes and short videos for 8 years. I treasure every moment that composes my life.
