Hello, I'm Solji Lee ;)
STUDYING DESIGN (MDes)
AT UW, SEATTLE.
I love to solve problems in society that are deeply rooted in the people by the insight which is driven through research findings, quantitative data and multiple sights understanding the world. And I believe Design is the most effective and beautiful tool for creating a solution.
To make it possible, I enjoy crossing the boundaries of different fields and persuade to be a cross-disciplinary designer and a Renaissance woman. I dream to create a positive impact on society and change the world in a good way.
I'm currently studying Master of Design (MDes) at the University of Washington, Seattle. Before UW, I studied UX design and worked as a researcher in Public design field.
During my free time, I love getting to know about different fields such as statistics, editing, coding. Also, I regularly share my works on my account. You can see my various and steady interesting about Design and the society in Dribbble.
If you'd like to know more about what I'm doing, learning and thinking about, come and take a look at my resume and portfolio.

Toward Renaissance Woman
Renaissance people understand and know the whole of society, and get know problems and solutions that others are not aware of with that wide perspective. Designers, who are interested in the problems of the world and need to come up with solutions, must be able to diagnose society with that wider perspective.
So I want to be a renaissance type of human being.
