Class of 2023


Leah How seeks to create digital experiences through strategy and design. After graduating from Brandeis University with a Bachelor of Arts in Business and Film, Television, and Interactive Media Studies, she launched her career as a digital strategist for an early-stage health & wellness startup. There, she discovered her passion for user experience design when she had the opportunity to build a text-based online learning platform from the ground up. Since then, she has traveled across the world, leading creative teams for technology startups in New York and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

She is truly fascinated by how user experience design combines research, strategy, liberal arts, and design to bring users together and improve their digital experience. Her goal is to use her unique background in digital strategy, business, and design to create user-centered products to transform the future landscape of digital experiences.

Outside of design, Leah How enjoys creating digital content on Instagram and making handmade boutique earrings from polymer clay. She loves the idea of connecting with people through art, design, and understanding different cultures.
