I am Fama Ndiaye an Experience Designer who recently graduated from SCAD with a bachelor's degree in Advertising (Creative Technology). Raised in DC, but I consider myself a 3rd culture kid since I have lived in many different places. These experiences had strengthened my sense of curiosity and understanding for others and shaped me to the person I am today and have majorly influenced my motives when it comes to furthering my understanding of human behavior and everyday interactions.
Outside of my education and my love for design I have had the chance to volunteer with Amnesty International and Operation Smile. In my free time, I binge cringy reality tv shows and make memes out of them, enjoy curating music from various decades, or chat in design forums on Slack!
