Hi! bonjour! salaam!

I'm Duaa and I strive to design impactful experiences that empower people.

I'm currently pursuing an Honours Bachelor of Interaction Design at Sheridan College. I gravitate towards projects that allow me to have an impact, from designing educational content for people with low-tech literacy to building a community for designers of colour. I'm looking for my next opportunity to craft impactful and meaningful experiences.

When I'm not designing, I enjoy reading πŸ“š, binge-watching Netflix πŸ“Ί, eating out πŸ₯˜, hacking πŸ† and going on spontaneous adventures 🌊.

Curious to know how my favourite Disney movie made me fall in love with design? Passionate about the future of inclusive design? Reach out!

let's chat!
