I am a 23-year-old UX designer with a strong focus on creating the best user experience for my users. Having completed an internship with Rapid7, where I gained a lot of experience designing for their cybersecurity platform, I am now employed there as a UX designer.
The idea for my final year major project was generated by the shocking statistics of food wastage which we hear about each day in the news. 50% of this food waste takes place in our homes. Much of it is still edible and could be put to use.
Harnessing the power of technology to fight food waste is the approach that I want to take. I wanted to create a platform that will help to reduce the amount of food wastage from our homes by designing a mobile application that allows communities to interact and share their unwanted food around their local areas. I also wanted to give my users the opportunity to locate food banks in order to donate to those struggling through hard times.
