Entry Description

Memories we associate with negative emotions limit our perspective and influence our future life experiences by reinforcing negative thought patterns which shape our daily lifestyle.

“brighter” is a mindfulness app that provides a safe space for people to express their thoughts through journaling and recommends CBT-based exercises, guided by an emotional voice assistant, to help them transform their negative experiences and emotions into positive ones.


I'm a User Experience designer who enjoys product and visual design.

I’m constantly questioning things around me and trying to find better ways we can live our lives. When I discovered UX, I knew it was perfect for me as someone who strongly believes in the ability of humans to impact change in the lives of others. Soon, I learnt that the ways that I could make this positive change was through bringing empathy and passion into my work, to create memorable experiences by communicating in the form of a story and prioritizing the user.
