MY HISTORY

WHAT MAKES ME WHO I AM

My name is Raquel, but my friends call me Raque or Rachel. I’m a UX Designer who enjoys continuing to learn and develop.

I was born and raised in Mexico City, where I earn my degree in Graphic Design. My passion for books made me specialize in Editorial Design.

I’m currently living in Toronto, where I have over three years of experience in Customer Service, and seeing the pain points users experience made me turn into UX Design.

What do I love about UX Design?Ā  I love that I can help people. Being empathetic is one of the many skills I learned while in Customer Service roles. That, combined with my background in Graphic Design, allowed me to start creating memorable experiences for my users.Ā
