Life of a yo-pro
Apr 23, 2020
The term yo-pro is a funny one. You have a professional job with your life somewhat together, but you also still love a good party. I have to say, it’s a pretty good gig. Now, when you mix this with a global pandemic things change up a bit. You have to quickly adapt your usual routinely office life to a working from home environment and maintain your productivity because people rely on you. Whilst still working, but no longer being able to try to relive my student life, I feel like the ‘yo’ has been taken out of yo-pro, and I’m getting trained up for when I finally decide to settle down a bit.
Who am I you ask? I’m Ash and probably the perfect example of someone who will never settle down. On a slightly more professional note, I am a uni drop out (which I have learnt is not something to be ashamed of!) and I am currently working as a Web Designer for the Ministry of Social Development. I suppose that fits me into the yo-pro box and why I got asked by entré to give an insight into my work life during this time.
My role is extremely creative and involves designing/improving the look and experience of new and existing government websites. Here is what a day in my life looks like right now:
Daily Stand Up (can get away with sitting down at home!)
Design review on developers work
Even more tea
Take a wild guess here.. yep TEA!
