Shifting of focus

Updated: Aug 30, 2020

Prior to starting my UX/UI bootcamp and working on my Capstone, I was not aware that I had a bias. I wanted to focus on Telehealth education, as it was central to my dissertation in my doctorate. It was explained to me that I needed to focus on where the money was coming from. So, I did and it became clear that the focus was no longer on nurses but on caregivers. I really didn't want to let go of the education part, as it was like I was losing a baby. I have never had a baby but I assume it would feel like that...I worked so hard on it and it was so hard to let go. However, I also know that it is necessary for me to move forward and to do an amazing job.


Sometimes we don't realize we have a bias until it is pointed out to you. Caregiving is also a big part of my life. I have been a caregiver of my father for over 8 years. I am sure there are parts of it that I have a bias about too. However, I am focusing on a different area than I have experienced. My capstone will still stay in the telehealth area but it will be more about supporting caregivers.
