Are you new here? Did you stumble upon this page accidentally?
Aspiring designer, creator, animator, comic-maker, cool-stuff-doer? Confused about undergrad and grad school or even the job? Ever since I started out my career in design, I came across a number of people who extended support, encouraged, and pointed me in the right direction. I will always be grateful to them. Here’s my way to giving back to the community that raised me as a designer. Especially to all the women in tech who’ve always inspired me.
Here is a list of resources where you can find the right kind of mentors, portfolios and some cool resources.
I will be updating this list regularly.
