When did you start using Gravity Sketch?

October 2019.

How has Gravity Sketch impacted your workflow?
Gravity Sketch expanded my creative process in so many areas. It really helps me to create my ideas of what I envision and see beforehand, and then to generate these quickly. Gravity Sketch interestingly opened up some blockades of creating abstract concepts, I got crazier in my design, sort of, I believe that my creativity is in some ways more free.

Are there any women designers you look up to?
There are many women I admire – simply my peers at school, everyone raises their voice and is so strong. I even believe that, for example, that Greta Thunberg falls into the category of design because she created this extremely powerful movement of climate change, fights for our future and the future of our earth. So, within this she is influencing the design community because she is shaping a new form of conscious awareness of how we design.  
Are there barriers for women entering the design industry?
I think it is important not to let anyone change you and tell you that you cannot make it. You are already so powerful as a woman, and you are literally the best version of yourself by being truly you. Your belief about your creation, design and you as a human is what makes you unique.
