I'm Kahlan,

a UX/UI Designer

PROFILE

I was born and raised in Trinidad, but have been living in Toronto for the past 3 years. 

 

I came across UX by chance one day, but in that moment, the dots started to connect. Making the move from a small Caribbean island with a rich blended culture, to a large city in Canada, full of diverse cultures and backgrounds has taught me a lot about empathy, and fuelled my drive to learn more about people's unique stories. It has shown me different perspectives and helped me see things through a new lens. 

 

BACKGROUND 

Coming from an educational background in Political Science and professional background in Marketing, I was able to strengthen my research and communication skills, as well as analytical and problem solving, but something was missing. Design and creativity have always been two important elements in my life, and I wanted the opportunity to couple them with my natural curiosity, skills, and personality. That’s why coming across UX when I did was so fortuitous; it gave me the opportunity to understand the users, solve problems, and exercise empathy, all through creative design.
