What students say

"I LOVE Erika. The energy she gives off is such a perfect match for my enthusiasm and passion to learn more about UX. She gives great advices on my projects and approach to each one. I like how she gives me her experience on similar approaches, even if they are different from how the course work suggests it. I loved having non-course conversations like portfolio, job hunting, working with clients, conducting research. It helped me see what type of real world experiences are like vs course work. I definitely want to have Erika as my mentor for when I sign up for Interaction Design. I want her to have the context for my project as I see it through the IxD course."

"Erika is immensely helpful and patient. She gives great, constructive feedback to help you understand better and get the most out of the course. I was lucky to have her as my mentor."
