Volunteered with Out In Tech
I participated in the Out in Tech Digital Corps June 2021, an annual event to build websites for LGBTQ+ activists (and this year, queer-owned businesses & start-ups.) I contributed to a team building a fully functioning website for a biotechnology company working on a technology that can visualize the human proteome. The primarily goals were to establish a clean, professional website for the co-founders and board to use while pursuing the next stages of funding and employee recruitment for their organization.

I contributed my time and skills working collaboratively with a remote team of volunteers using Wordpress, Figma, and other digital tools to craft a complete website by the end of the event. My specific responsibilities were constructing the 'careers' recruitment page, populating the page with the appropriate content and images, and assisting the lead designer with crafting and implementing a cohesive visual design system across the site. I also assisted teammates with various tasks, providing feedback when needed.

The team worked together remotely from all over the world using Zoom, Slack channels, and shared Google Docs to assign and complete tasks. It was so much fun to work with other creative humans, and I even learned a few new things along the way!

Learned Adobe XD
As part of the bootcamp I completed this year, I learned how to use and complete mockups using Adobe XD! I worked on projects diagramming the essential features, content, and functionality of webpages.

Used Notion
Of all the things I’ve done over the last year, I think learning to use Notion has made the hugest difference in my life. In fact, it’s what enabled me to get (and stay) organized enough to work on other projects and enroll in a bootcamp, whilst working remotely and caring for a child whose school was open one week, closed the next. (Thanks, pandemic!) 

Pairing Notion with a GTD framework and a healthy dose of bullet journaling methodology really did the trick-I felt less scattered, and more able to focus on one day, week, month, quarter at a time.

Learned Figma
Completed a side project
After learning to use Figma a bit for a class project, I took the initiative to work with it on a variety of independent projects, and I’m even working on my first template to share with the community! My only challenge is not having enough hours in the day to watch tutorials! Good problems, eh? 😜

Joined a community
I left the WFH comfort zone and joined a local co-working space this year! It’s been fun to meet folx from a variety of industries, and it’s always nice to have someone else make the coffee sometimes...😅
