I hope you are having a lovely day.

It means a lot that you're here. My name is Karen, and I am a product designer and pre-law student at UC Berkeley.

You may have heard about the politics of Free Speech at UC Berkeley from the news. At the moment, I help ensure that our campus communities are invested in positive changes that are more than what the media says about us. I work with changemakers (politicians, designers, developers) and media, like NBC and CBS, to communicate resources that address student needs through our student government.

While at UC Berkeley, I also help promote the pre-law community on campus with Kappa Alpha Pi and provide IT support to the research and graduate division in the Electrical Engineering and Computer Science department.

This past Summer, I've had the opportunity to practice lots of design and eat many pastéis de nata (egg tart) and bacalhau (codfish) with thoughtful designers and consultants at Accenture Digital in Lisbon.
