"Wei was a great mentor. She's smart, well-organized, and knowledgeable. She's also very approachable and easy to talk with, and consistently shared new insights throughout our calls. She provided frequent and thoughtful feedback throughout the sessions in addition to our schedule meetings which was helpful in getting through the material in a short period of time. I always felt that she was engaged and invested my projects. "

"A big part of what I enjoyed about my DesignLab experience was my mentor, Wei! She is very knowledgeable regarding the UX field and is so friendly and approachable. Wei had great resources for me to check out (articles, websites, books, newsletters) and it was really easy to talk to her for one-hour sessions. "
