Presenting our work at Implementing Impact!

Rachel Dixon and I were invited to the Implementing Impact! Strategies for Creative Intervention class to present out thesis project as case studies and participate in a panel discussion to discuss the process and the impact of our respective projects.

The Design for Social Innovation program at the School of Visual Arts recently wrote a blog post about it which you can read here.

That amazing feeling!

“Today’s good news is another important step to fixing aspects of our broken immigration system – this time, it’s allowing spouses of certain workers to put their education, training and talents to work in the country they love and call home...” 

Todd Schulte, president of FWD.us from The Wall Street Journal


This article on the Wall Street Journal was posted by our client, Meghna Damani. We worked with her to create a PSA to encourage voting for a policy change to authorize spouses on H4 Visa status to work in the United States. 

This article means so much more than a permission grant to work for people across the country. It is a hope of freedom and independence in multiple significant ways. I am thankful to be trusted to hear the difficult stories and be a part of this change with my amazing team at Design for Social Innovation.

Blog Post by DSI

Design for Social Innovation posted a blog on our prototyping experience in India. Pragya and I are creating a program to improve the healthcare experience of patients in the government hospitals in India. This blog talks about our learnings on incentives for volunteers. 

Please read the blog to know more about our project and contact us if you have feedback  or questions for us!

Happy New Year!!

Gina Kim, Juno Lee, Rhea Rakshit and I have been working on a project focussed on children with autism since September 2014. We are building a collaborative tool for parents and caregivers of children with autism to exchange information and make collective decisions to ease the transition for a child from one environment to the other.
