Lizan van den Aker

I am a cheerful, spontaneous, motivated, open minded and creative 27 year old Dutchie with love for design, food, traveling, socializing, laughing and learning. Born and raised in a small town in a small country — The Netherlands. After 25 years of doing everything by the book, I decided it was time to spice up my life. And after 6 years of working in the IT industry it seemed like the perfect time to quit my job and leave the life that I knew behind for an amazing adventure that I had dreamed of for years. I packed my bags and traveled the world for 1.5 years. An incredible journey that lead me to amazing places, cultures and experiences. I recently came back from this trip of a life time and I am ready and excited for the next chapter in my life.

That mostly includes doing things that make me happy. Finding a job that I am actually passionate about! A job that gives me the energy and enthousiasm to go to work every day with a smile on my face. Because besides eating, traveling and dancing, it's definitely time to work again. And I am truly excited for that! For me the connection between the human brain and digital products has always been so interesting and important. Because in a world where so many things are frustrating and complicated already, a (web) product shouldn't be. I want to participate in creating userfriendly and easy to use web products to minimize the stressful situations that humans have to deal with during the day. I'm all for a happy and mindfull life. That's why I want to persue a career in UX Research. Would you like to give me a chance? Or at least have a cup of tea with me? Call me! ;-)
