Hello there! I go by the name Miuki Miu, but my real name is Elizabet Oliveira. As a designer who is also skilled in coding, I strive to create innovative and engaging web experiences.
My journey in the tech industry started as a web developer, but I quickly discovered that my passion lies in the more visual aspects of the web. My love for interaction design, front-end technology, and animation is what drives me to create fun and engaging web experiences.
I am passionate about open-source. In April 2018, my project React Kawaii won the "Fun Project of the Year" award at React Amsterdam!
Music was also a big part of my life. I was the first female solo Hip-Hop artist signing to a major label (Universal Music) in Portugal. My songs reached the top of MTV Portugal's charts, but I soon realized that I was not meant to be an artist. I found out that I'm much happier designing, coding, and speaking at conferences all around the world!
Today, I am proud to work as a Senior Product Designer at Xata, where I can utilize my skills and creativity to develop innovative products. Besides my professional work, I enjoy mentoring other designers and developers and speaking at React conferences around the world. I strongly believe in fostering an open and supportive tech community, so my DMs are always open for anyone who needs advice or guidance.
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about me, and I look forward to connecting with you soon!
