August 2022: Thank you, Yudy

I will miss traveling to colleges across the Bay Area all the way to Fresno. I will miss having the first insights into students’ artwork of the Inspire Oakland Design Challenges. I will miss being at the studio, sometimes by myself, and getting my work done, feeling productive and motivated to keep going. I will definitely miss conducting 80+ interviews to find the best 20 UX apprentices. I will miss working with 14+ companies, annually, to teach and facilitate the UX Design Apprenticeships. I will always miss and treasure my time at BRIDGEGOOD.
