Here I am in Seoul, Korea at a rooftop with a view of the iconic green rooftops :D This day was definitely a highlight of my study abroad adventures.

Hi, nice to meet you, I'm Sherry! I'm currently a 4th year at UCLA studying Cognitive Science with a specialization in computing and minoring in Asian American Studies.

Why Product Design: My passion for design, creativity, and helping others all fit into Product Design, a career that combines everything I want to do. I love being pushed to solve design problems creatively with real world data and people in mind. Minoring in Asian American Studies and learning about my parent’s refugee stories have really grounded me and taught me the importance of empathy and accurate storytelling. I want to help people & I want to design. So here I am as a Product Designer!

How I got here: Graphic Design for clubs → Wondering how I can use design to help people → Group Product Design projects → Individual Product Design projects & Internships → Looking for more learning opportunities!

Currently: Designing for KnowMe & UCLA Student Affairs IT

What else I'm up to: Reading Medium articles about productivity, finance, & design, crocheting squares (I'm working up to amigurumi animals!), and looking for the next big productivity tool to use (I LOVE all things productivity and you can probably find me making game plans and spreadsheets for my classes, projects, and life goals in my free time haha)

Thanks for checking out my portfolio! I love connecting with others, so feel free to reach out to me at sherrylam@ucla.edu or on Linkedin.
