I dealt mainly with the four industrial fields of home electronics, food retail, medical healthcare, and real estate, from launching projects to management. My bachelor degree is in Journalism.

Final project proposal
Femtech Service for Menopause -Empower Women Through Technology
By 2025, there will be over 1 billion women experiencing menopause in the world, which will be 12% of the entire world population of 8 billion. Over 70% of women in their 50s have some form of menopausal symptoms. Despite this, more than half of them do not talk to anyone about it or do anything about the menopause. There are a number of reasons behind this problem, such as; -Social bias that the topic of menopause is something to be ashamed of -Society places a lot of value on fertility and reproduction -Few decision-makers in the society have experience with menopause In this project, I would like to explore how we can help women suffering from menopause to free themselves physically and mentally.
