Ayesha Tak joins UXRS
We are thrilled to have Ayesha join the team as a Content Writer
1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.
I'm Ayesha and I currently work in government administration mostly on the HR operations side, but my tasks vary day-to-day as I work with many different teams from IT to management, which I like. I completed grad school with an M.A. in Sociology where I fell in love with UX in a design anthropology course. What stuck out to me about UX research was empathy being at the core of research design and strategy.
2. What attracted you to get involved with UXRS?
As someone who is not in a direct UX role (yet!), UXRS acted as a bridge for me to connect my already existing knowledge and experience of academic and applied research to the world of UX. While the organization serves mainly other UX professionals, their way of presenting information is clear and relatable enough to welcome people of all academic or work backgrounds. I've done content writing in the past and it's the best feeling being given an opportunity to write something you are genuinely excited about.
3. What is your favorite thing about UXRS and why?
While I've read books on UX and research, the content and events that UXRS puts out has contributed to my knowledge on an ongoing basis as the field continues to grow and change. The organization exemplifies how knowledge isn't just passively transmitted, but is also actively gained when we listen to each other and learn from our peers.
4. What would you like to see in UXRS's future?
More community engagement and interactive content. There's so much we can learn from the community.

We are here to serve the UX community: keep you in the know, connected to each other and always learning.
