About me

I’ve had a varied career across industries like tech, banking and education, but I knew it was time for a change. I was drawn to the Master in Strategic Interior Design not only for the program’s flexibility but for the relevance of the subject matter in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

POSITION

Strategic Business and Design Consultant

When Belinda set out to change her career path, she originally began looking for an MBA program. But in the age of COVID-19, she knew it was time to be bold and embark on something she’d never done before. So, when a design program caught her eye during her research, she decided to take the leap and pursue this long-held passion.

The fact is that the pandemic has transformed our concept and use of space—whether it’s at home, school or the office. This has created a world of opportunity in the area of architecture and design, something that was not lost on Belinda when making her decision.

“The way we work, live, learn and shop has changed forever. And design is integral to the realization of this change and future shifts.”

That’s why organizations must adopt more agile solutions that better align with their business goals.

Throughout her studies, Belinda had the privilege to learn from leading lecturers and business professionals in the field, which has broadened her horizons in a “life-changing” way. Armed with new perspectives, she discovered how design can benefit the evolving educational industry.

Aside from the timely subject matter, Belinda is grateful that the Master in Strategic Interior Design offered a practical way to accommodate her passion for learning with her existing career.

It’s a testament to her belief that if you crave a change of direction or want to pursue a new path that better suits your goals, there’s always a way. No matter the circumstances—even in the midst of a global pandemic—making a change can open doors to new experiences that you never thought possible.
