Mentor Profile

Yeeling Chua

UX/UI Designer • Design Mentor

My professional career kickstarted 8 years ago as a digital designer with 3 years in advertising and 5 years in the UX field.

In the last 1.5 years, I’ve also taught in Singapore Polytechnic's School of Design and Orita Sinclair School of Music & Design with a focus in UX, design thinking methodologies, web and mobile app design. To date, I've taught over 100+ students on-campus.

For the most part, I embarked on a little journey to become an independent designer. Since then, I've worked with various global agencies, SMEs, startups while experiencing in-house/remote-working arrangements and all that in-between. This concoction of exposure has groomed me to work, communicate and adapt well in teams as well as independently.

My next focus is to mentor and transfer everything I've learned in the last 8 years to groom our next generation of designers and (hopefully) contribute to propelling the design industry to greater heights.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this mentorship for?
This program is primarily for students/mentees who are looking for career directions in UX/UI or other digital design career path. If you’re pursuing a career as a developer, it’s better to join other mentorships who are focused on that.

While we're experienced in the freelance design domain, if you're seeking an entrepreneurial mentorship in a business outside of providing design or creative services and products, we believe it's better for you to join other programs that can provide better value for you.
Can I join this program if I have zero knowledge in design and UX/UI?
As this program is more focused on imparting real world experiences and knowledge to getting designers industry-ready, we recommend that you have at least some background in understanding the creative ecosystem and at least an intermediate level of technical skillset.

You are, of course, still welcome to join this program as a beginner. However, your customized mentorship program may be extended as compared to other students simply because there would be so much more that you’ll have to learn and master.
Can I cancel a session booking?
Yes, you may reschedule or cancel your session up to 12 hours before the scheduled booking time.

If you fail to cancel before 12 hours of the scheduled session and not show up, it will be considered as a no-show.
Can I get a refund?
If you cancel a booking up to 12 hours before the scheduled session, you will receive a 95% refund. The remaining 5% is a non-refundable booking fee.

If you cancel a booking within 12 hours of the scheduled session, you will receive a 50% refund.

If you miss a session without canceling, it will be considered as a no-show and no refunds will be made.
Will I be given a refund for the initial consultation if I end up not joining the program?
We absolutely respect your decision if you do not wish to continue with our program after the initial consultation and you may simply not make any further booking.

However, no refunds will be given for the initial consultation.
Can I schedule another portfolio session review if required?
Yes, absolutely. Our portfolio session reviews are all one-time arrangements. If you need more review sessions, simply make another booking.

However, if you'd like periodic portfolio review sessions or progress reviews, we recommend that you speak to us about a tailored mentorship program so that we can set milestones, track your progress and ensure that your goals are being met.
