On September 17, 2013 I was the luckiest girl in the world to have the opportunity to talk as the headliner for CAPCHI's 21013-2014 year. It was a great night full of laughs, mistakes and stories, but hopefully though provoking and a bit inspiring for all who attended.

The topic was the 5 Ws and they're buddy h and their application in user experience design.
