A Passionate UX Designer chosen among 1,500 applicants to be part of an exclusive cohort of only 100 graduates at the renowned Apple Developer Academy.
This accomplishment is highlighted through my participation in six consecutive team-based challenges. In my latest and sixth challenge, I had the privilege of leading a team of skilled UX/UI designers in crafting “Routr,” an innovative app aimed at assisting remote workers in discovering nearby, free available workspaces. Our efforts not only achieved successful product delivery but also involved crafting effective design strategies and meeting tight deadlines through design sprints. As a result of these endeavors, “Routr” became fully functional for testing through TestFlight.
Beyond my professional attributes, my friendly and open-minded personality stands as my superpower. My exposure to numerous diverse and culturally rich collaborative experiences across teams has granted me a profound sense of empathy throughout the development processes. This enables me to communicate more effectively with my colleagues, especially during moments of uncertainty or personal challenges, where displaying grace is essential. After all, we are all human and deserve support when facing difficulties.
I am confident that I can be a valuable asset to your program and can contribute to the success of your organization. I look forward to discussing my qualifications in further detail. Thank you for your time and consideration.
Sincerely, Artavis Sanders
