Firstly, I want to express my gratitude for having such an inspiring mentor like her. Since I decided to pursue a new career, I had many questions and felt confused.

Despite searching and reaching out to others and communities for help, I felt like something was missing. I was looking for a mentor who had already walked the path that I wanted to take, and I found her on YouTube by chance. After watching her interview, I knew that she was the exact person I was looking for. I read all the articles she wrote on Branch and was able to gain more clarity on my new journey.

Through having a coffee chat with her, I was able to receive the answers that I was looking for. I think it is really important to have a mentor when you start a new journey, otherwise, it may take too much time to arrive at the destination or it may be easy to get lost along the way. Thanks to having her as my mentor, I feel more confident to start this new journey.

Thank you for sharing insights on your career journey and for the positive influence you've had on me. I would appreciate more opportunities to talk with you and receive further guidance.

You are the best mentor ever!!!

Today has been an incredibly enjoyable and inspiring day! Thanks to the exceptional product design mentoring session, I can now plan my future with optimism and lay the foundation for my journey as a product designer. Despite my portfolio being in its early stages, the mentor tailored their advice to my specific situation and shared invaluable insights only a seasoned professional would know.

Initially, I hesitated to book the session due to the cost, but looking back, it feels like an absolute bargain. I am truly grateful for this amazing experience, and it has filled me with enthusiasm and excitement for my future in product design!

Portfolio Review
Vivi is the most knowledgeable and empathetic mentor that I’ve ever met. She provided me with practical insights and guidance based on her experiences, which helped me a lot to land a Product Designer role.

After the mentorship service, I was able to get three offers as a freelancer, full-timer and part-timer. She is like my life-saver.

I had been struggling a lot but I’m now so excited to continue developing my career as a Product Designer. I highly recommend the mentorship service with her. You wouldn’t regret it.

Vivi is such a supportive and helpful mentor. She encouraged me and gave me a lot of realistic and professional advice at the same time. The mentoring session was so meaningful that I felt like it was too short. I definitely recommend her as a mentor!

I found Vivi extremely helpful and kind. She explained how to correct errors in my portfolio. Although information-wise, the session was pretty intense, it was really pleasant.

Vivi is an excellent mentor. You'll be surprised about how much you can accomplish in 30 minutes if you have the right guidance. :)
I got to know Vivi through her blog. It's a motivator for me. In Australia, jacaranda flowers are called exam flowers. They call it the "exam flower" because it blooms on exam day in Australia It's the same color as Vivi's identity. Today's mentoring session is about what I should do as a designer I felt like I was taking a preliminary exam.

Thank you for giving me 30 minutes of mentoring It was very helpful and encouraging. Now I know how to work on it by explaining the UX that I found difficult at once.

I recently had an incredibly helpful coffee chat with Vivi Shin, a product designer working in the industry. Living in Australia and seeking new opportunities, I found her insights invaluable.

Vivi addressed my specific questions, provided career guidance, and shared practical tips. Her passion and real-world experience left me feeling motivated and inspired.

If you're aspiring to be a product designer, I highly recommend connecting with Vivi for a transformative conversation.

It was so lovely to have a chat with Vivi, she gave me an opportunity to ask plenty of questions to clarify what's the most important thing that I wanted to take away from the mentoring session.

I appreciate the time and effort that Vivi took to go through my portfolio and provided insightful feedback.
I feel way more confident in my ability to revise the portfolio and looking forward to applying her advice. Thanks again for your time!

I had a great conversation with Vivi. She advised me on the path to take towards becoming a Product Designer.

At the beginning of my career challenge, I've been overwhelmed and messy a lot. But she gave me realistic tips on my situations.

And after the mentoring session, I took a step back and thought about what I can do right now for my goals from small parts. It was a very motivational conversation and great to hear her own experiences! Highly recommend speaking to Vivi :)
Vivi took did justice to how I can handle imposter syndrome. Action points come in handy and are very needed right now in my journey. Thanks so much.
It was a great pleasure talking with Vivi. She listened carefully to my background and asked questions to define my needs, which also helped me clear up some of the muddy areas.

She gave me a lot of insightful and practical advice to achieve my goal, and the session couldn't be more inspiring and uplifting.

Thank you, Vivi!
