I've been watching ownpath for a while and interacting with grads and I'm super excited at what they're trying to create. They're trying to build a new, different kind of work-education hybrid model ...

There's so much to talk about in what I've been upto for the last two months.
🔥 things so far:
- learning from masterclasses and then applying it to our problem statement
- working with fellows who have become dear friends
- confidence in my ability to drive a design process

Having spent quite a bit on design education myself and witnessing how it can be exclusionary, I love that
@ownpath_xyz is pushing to make education accessible 🙌🏻
