Got a chance to attend Clarity Conference 2021. I'm one lucky person who's got a scholarship. Connect with other Designer / Engineers building design systems.

I will attend the next Clarity Conference for sure. Thanks again to the Clarity team for this opportunity. I will try to document my experience from the talk soon 🤞🏼.
