What seemed to be a one time event, just to satisfy my curiosity, soon turned out to be a long term relationship. I found about WWJ from LinkedIn sometime in May during the lockdown.
I was intrigued by the diversity of the topics we discussed at WWJ. But more than that, by the people. I believe we are a global community of explorers, seekers, experimenters and creators. As a UX Researcher, WWJ for me has been about gethering new perspectives, learning new tools and challenging my stereotypes.
Some ideas like Yuen Yen's #formfollowsfun and the broader ideology of #failingforward resonated with me. And before I knew I found myself among these amazingly talented group of people called 'Social Mafias' volunteering to fail forward. It has been an enriching learning journey since then!
