I'm June, an aspiring UX designer with a background in journalism and market research. Currently I'm covering public relations and marketing at a blockchain startup in Silicon Valley. Before that, I worked as a UI/UX designer at a tech startup and a data visualization designer at a market research firm in the Bay Area.

I found my passion in UX design when I was pursuing my master's degree in journalism at Medill School, Northwestern University. My journalism experience helped me develop powerful empathy - to think in users' shoes by conducting ethnographic fieldwork, one-on-one interviews and usability testings. The professional experience in market research enhanced my quantitative analytical skills. I desire to apply my storytelling skills and an in-depth background in blockchain to create user-centric products in the fin-tech industry.

I'm a boba tea lover β˜•οΈ, an amateur skier 🎿, and a certified scuba diver 🌊. Feel free to reach me by email yingcong617@gmail.com.
