I love to challenge myself in new fields because you can never know what you are capable of if you hesitate to try. During the last two years in university, in order to find what I wish to do in this world I worked hard in class learning application UI prototyping design and development, industrial design, physical computing, graphic design and UX research. Even after the classes I was still thirsty so I went outside to experience more, participating in various competitions and events (design research, IoT product industrial design exhibition, fashion design project and more). Nothing was easy at first. Most of the time I was the only one new to the field when everyone else were experts. It was challenging physically and mentally but I tried harder than anyone else and tried to learn from everyone around me. In the beginning I was novice, but after few months I made great progress and results.

Through my experiences I gained insight of how the designers work in the industry. I noticed that as technology is rapidly developing, new technology is enter our daily lives. For example, Google glasses, Fitbit and apple-watch were one of the first wearables that were introduced to the public. At first they were welcome, but after sometime they disappeared. These were the first trials for wearables, now there are many more beautiful products coming out. Tech companies have collaborated with fashion brands, and now ‘wearables’ have become ‘fashion wearables’. The companies understood that people would not use wearables if they only concentrated on the function. They needed to understand people’s lifestyle/values and give better user experience. I see that there will be many interesting changes in the fashion industry as well. Actually the fashion industry is already changing, using new technology for marketing, fashion wearables and fashion shows. It is amazing how technology is giving designers’ unlimited possibility to design never-before-seen beautiful and functional products for people.
