Kevin Ta

Location: Vancouver, British Columbia Canada

Company: University of British Columbia

Profession: Student

Inspired by: The world is a constant whirlwind of change. Going into engineering, I wanted the ability to steer change, to control the direction in which the headwinds point.
I want to be an effective altruist and I often think about the world in how I can do more good, to help more people. Sustainability and biomedical initiatives in particular are where I find myself continually drawn to because these are often really big problems with really big impacts. To make system more efficient, to make look for unmet needs, and to improve the stewardship we have for the world and one another are the driving influences in my goals as a designer.
