UXPH + ADPList Kick-off: The Impact of Community & Mentorship

I celebrated my birthday and turned 24. Hosted a kick-off party with UXPH and ADPList. The event was entitled Kick-off: The Impact of Community & Mentorship 😎

We had ADPList Mentors share their insights about the impact of community and mentorship in the Philippine Creative Scene during this 1-hour session held on Zoom and Facebook Live.

This was my first time hosting an event. Happy to say that I also learned a lot from the discussion between the panel speakers we invited to speak! 🀩

Our initial plan was to host this event on ADPList Meet but we decided to host the event instead on Zoom and Facebook Livestream.

The community was super engaging in the chat with conversations and questions happening during the live panel discussion.

It was also our first time getting Zoom-bombed which led the UXPH Team to take account Zoom Security features moving forward. 😭

Here are some tips I learned after my session with Grace Ling and me checking out Zoom security features:
  1. Enable waiting room.
  2. Disable screen-sharing in security settings.
  3. Mute participants upon entry.
  4. Don’t allow participants to rename themselves to avoid trolling.
  5. Have multiple co-hosts to moderate the session.

Shoutout to UXPH Team and ADPList Team (Ina, Aldrich, Kaizen, Mikka, Ely, Jade, Jentz, Lindy, Charlotte, Jake, Angela, Felix, Winona, and Jun) as well for the support, partnership, and event planning!

Founded in 2020, ADPList is on a mission to democratize mentorships for all. ADPList is a platform for people to find, book, and meet mentors around the world. They also host a lot of events and group mentoring sessions for the design community!

This is the beginning of something amazing and I'm excited to be collaborating with ADPList!

Fireside Chat: Landing Your First UX Job


Organized a Fireside Chat for UXPH! The event was entitled Fireside Chat: Landing Your First UX Job πŸ”₯

We had hiring managers from different industries share their tips and suggestions on how to land their first UX job during this 2-hour session held on Zoom and Facebook Live.

It was my first time to organize an event. Super happy that I also learned a lot from the discussion between the panel speakers we invited to speak! 🀩

Our intial plan was to host this event on UXPH Discord Stages but we decided to host the event instead on Zoom and Facebook Livestream.

The community was super engaging in the chat with key takeaways and questions happening during the live panel discussion.

Quick shoutout to my fellow UXPH Volunteers (Stella, Chelle, Ina, Chevy, Riley, Trisha, Kaizen, Hannah, Mikka, and Jade) as well for the support and event planning!
