Katie Lin is a third-year student majoring in Cognitive Science with a Specialization in Design and Interaction at Sixth College. When she came to UCSD, she started as a General Biology major and explored the career path of becoming a researcher by working as a lab assistant. However, as she learned more about UX/UI and Product Design, her interest was heavily sparked, and she decided to shift the trajectory of her professional journey.
More specifically, Katie discovered her passion to utilize the combination of creativity and the design thinking process to enhance the user experience of individuals in their everyday lives. She hopes to become a UX/UI designer and looks forward to expanding her perspective by gaining more professional experience and intertwining design with an industry that she is passionate about.
During her free time, Katie loves to try out new delicious food with friends, watch dramas and VCT, read manhwa, and attend concerts for her favorite artists. After switching majors, Katie decided to rush Alpha Kappa Psi to find a community where she could develop and gain professional support. She is thankful for the incredible memories that she has made within AKPsi and is ecstatic to create even more.
