Professional background: Criminology

For Troi, deciding to study criminology was initially sparked by her interest to help others. However, the traditional university route seemed to be bogged down by old processes and outdated ways of thinking. Troi believed there was something missing and decided to look for other ways to help people beyond traditional pathways.

Through Talent Rise, Troi received a scholarship in UX at Academy Xi. Humorously, her colleague saw Troi’s sketches and thought she would be a good candidate for UX, mistaking Graphic Design for User Experience Design. However, Troi’s experience with community building and design were a perfect mix for UX.
Since completing the UX Transform course in early 2018, Troi is now a UX Designer at Isobar.

Interview with Troi

“I recommend the UX Transform course to anyone who wants to learn or pursue a career in User Experience Design. I had no prior experience in the industry and Academy Xi equipped me with the UX skills, knowledge and confidence to become a UX Designer.”
