My name is Verónica Alfaro. I am an Industrial Design Engineer, graduated from Tecnológico de Costa Rica (TEC), and born and raised in Costa Rica.
As humans we have the ability to achieve unimaginable goals, both physically and intellectually. My interests in User Experience Design, Human Centered Design, and Data Visualization have fueled a passion to improves lives through inclusiveness, sustainability, and innovation.
My passions extend beyond design and technology. Traveling and sports have made a great impact in my life. When I'm not exploring the natural treasures of Costa Rica or the great food around the world, I compete in open water swim competitions and athletics races. I believe the competition of sports and cultural experience of traveling make us better professionals.
Giving back to my community is very important to me; I wanted to find a way to encourage students and young professionals to get more involved in design and technology. I achieved this by giving lectures about the relationship between UX design and data visualization and hosting workshops focused on Human Centered Design.
