One thing that interested me here was the mentorship format - it's rare for one to be able to work on projects that get reviewed by senior designers with the mentorship structured around it.

I had a lot of questions in general about the design process. My how's, what's and why's never were answered and that was my agenda coming into the fellowship - to build a strong design foundation and find my answers.

You know that you're receiving great mentorship when you leave a design critique session feeling pumped. I navigated ambiguous problem spaces & it's been very rewarding to see my ideas slowly crystallize.

I've learned how to break down a complex problem into its basic components and figure out the best way to solve it. In this process, I've rediscovered my love for design, stepped out of my comfort zone and learned so much.
