This was amazing to read! Not only I got tips on how to move forward but I also got a much needed affirmation that UX is for me, specially the part “In any given project, I always volunteered for the design part,”
Before I even knew that UX/UI was a field I was doing that too, insisting every time to take the front-end development and design part in my team projects. I use to spend spare time in college learning Photoshop and Illustrator rather than writing codes.
I just started freelancing locally and now onto Dribble account! Thank you for such an honest article.
