prototyping user journey (UI/UX), Adobe InDesign in report layouts, using Adobe Premiere Pro to create a series of facilitation videos

From June-August 2019, I was a summer intern at Eskolta School Research and Design, Inc. in New York City. Eskolta is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping urban public schools re-engage teenagers who are at risk of dropping out.


Using a data-driven, human-centered design approach, I was attracted by their use of design thinking to reframe student learning. I built a series of facilitation videos and mockups for the launch of the Eskolta Learning Center
(an online professional development platform).
