Summary: During the summer of 2022, I had the opportunity to work as a UX Design Intern for Microsoft under the Web Experience Collective. My work was concentrated around the modernization of the Start feed and bringing innovation to the Start app.


During my internship, I helped to drive feed modernization efforts on the mobile canvas. Below are a few different opportunities that I leveraged throughout my internship:

Overall, this internship was an amazing period of growth for me as a designer. I learned not only about the design process as a whole, but also about cross-discipline collaboration, telling a narrative through design, and most importantly about how to balance functionality with creating an enjoyable experience for the user. This internship opened my eyes to the fact that, while functionality is king in UX, designers shouldn't lose focus on the opportunities to provide small moments of delight to brighten the user's day.

Due to an NDA, I am unable to show the specifics of the work I have done during this internship. However, please reach out to me at ↗ if you would like to hear more information about my work and my experience during this inernship.
