Have you ever met an educational consultant with a designer's mindset? It is me. I might never find my calling if I haven’t met the book, Designing Your Life: How to Build a Well-Lived, Joyful Life. I was fascinated by the methodology developed by two professors in the Design School of Stanford University. It inspired me to initiate the series of Life Design Team workshops. Integrating my 10+ years of work experience in architectural design with 5+ years of diligent exploration in education, I am enthusiastic about supporting students to identify their interests, develop their strengths, and build a standout profile for their future careers.
