iSchool Peer Mentorship

I found great fulfillment in fostering the growth and potential of others. Together with my friend Paula, I co-mentored six first-year UXD students from my Master's program through the Faculty of Information (iSchool) Peer Mentorship Program. Leveraging Paula's research expertise and my design experience, we curated a series of workshops to share our experiences and lessons learned, nurturing a collaborative and supportive peer community among our mentees.

Miro + Faciliation Workshop


Drawing on her experience as a seasoned facilitator, Paula introduced several invaluable tips for designing workshops that effectively uncover user needs and stimulate meaningful conversations.


Intro to Design Tools Workshop

I guided our mentees through practical techniques for using design tools like Figma, Sketch, and Adobe XD, emphasizing the significance of a cohesive design system. We engaged in a hands-on exercise where we collectively designed a mobile app landing page, applying the tools and principles discussed.

In-Person Meetup!

We organized a small in-person meetup to talk about our aspirations, school life, and tips for internship applications!


Portfolio Workshop

We shared our experiences in portfolio preparation and led an interactive workshop to help each mentee discover the focal point of their portfolio. It was a collaborative effort aimed at refining their individual strengths and presenting them effectively.

1-on-1 Resume Review Session

We invited our mentees to share their resumes with us, followed by brief one-on-one Zoom calls to provide feedback on both the content and visual presentation of their resumes.
