I am a people-focused designer with an interest in Inclusive design in which I strive to design a future in which all types of citizens can be included, and their voices be heard.
neu tip aims to change how we look at teacher training around the topic of Neurodiversity within the classroom. This product and service takes a new approach to teacher training by encouraging children to share their experiences of a class by reflecting on what they enjoyed, and what they found challenging without putting their hand up in class to give live feedback to the teacher through their personal desk neut. This allows the teacher to reflect on their current teaching methods and prompt conversations between students and staff around their learning preferences/experiences.
This project began when looking into how we could make classrooms more inclusive for those who are neurodiverse. Through research, I found that most of the difficulty was the misunderstanding of those who are neurodiverse, and many assumptions are being made about pupils, by putting labels on them before even meeting them. This tool then also creates a digital experience Log which can be used to see trends in a child’s learning to better aid them in the future.
I want to change the way we categorise children on paper, Stop putting them in boxes and allow their experiences to tell us about them and their learning needs.

Care To Be
Care To Be is a support network with an in-home ‘Care base’ which is aiming to raise an informed and educated population. As “For the last 70 years, fertility rates have decreased worldwide, with a total of 50%” for many reasons including people being uncertain as to what situations/environments they would be bringing a child into, therefore, this project began in
an effort to offer support to those who need it in a future world of untraditional family structures and decreasing birth rates to guide them on their journey to make an informed decision on whether or not they would like to raise a family.
The system allows the user to create their own global ‘Family Network’ by matching users based on questions/thoughts they have fed into the home care base with people who might be going through the same situations or are knowledgeable of topics that the user is asking about.
By creating these connections, I want to provide information and support to the Care base user to help them make more informed decisions on their Health, Relationships and most importantly their futures with Care for themselves and others being at the core.
