About Me

Thank you for visiting my portfolio!
My name is Noëlie KAROUM.
I am a 26-year-old French girl living in Japan, now working as a UI/UX Designer in a Global company (in Tokyo).
My mother language is French, but I can also speak English and Japanese.
I graduated from Aix-Marseille University in France, with a Bachelor’s degree in Japanese Language, Literature, and Culture. I came to Japan in 2017, to study National Studies and Fashion at Meiji University to complete my 4th year. This year has been really rewarding as I discovered, learned, and grew up a lot, and this is when I thought I wanted to stay in Japan to live here.

Besides my deep interest in the Japanese language and its culture, I am passionate about Art and Design. I have been drawing since my youngest age, and I have always had a particular attachment to artistic activities and design processes until now. I have unfortunately never had the chance to enter a school or take a degree in this field, but as I love learning at my own pace, it wasn’t a bad thing for me to know more about it while studying by myself.

In 2019, I got hired by a Japanese Company, to start as a Designer Assistant. I learned a lot during some months, and I couldn’t be more thankful toward my team. Then, talking with my superiors about my skills and motivations, I changed my position to work as a Front-End Engineer. I immediately felt comfortable in accepting heavy tasks as building landing pages or working on existing corporate websites by myself.

Eager to level up my skills, I can’t stop trying to use a new tool everyday single day, especially in design. I am extremely motivated when it comes to Web Design, as it is still new to me and challenging, but also rewarding to be able to empathize, ideate, and then create things.

Willing to learn more about it, I recently started a UX Design Certificate Learning Program by Google, through the e-learning platform called Coursera. In this certificate, we learn the fundamental basics of UX design, how to use some tools, and the best part is surely the big projects we have to complete all along the way. You can see some of them on my Works page.

At this moment, I am looking for a new opportunity in another company, as I would like to get to work in a different environment and be able to learn various things to, maybe, specialise myself in the future. I am interested in Web Design positions, such as UI/UX Design, because I wish I could learn more and get new experiences in this field. Of course, I am also open to work as Front-End Engineer.
My goal is to get familiar with new technologies to become an expert and I am also really enthusiastic to take on increased responsibility and contribute to business success. I attach importance to teamwork, communication, and a healthy workspace, which are, I think, the pillars and the causes of great work with good results.

I have a lot of passions in life, but I think the most important is probably my passion for Fashion and Dolls. I love drawing, designing, and making clothes. So, I am also running a small business in my free time, I make Clothes for Articulated Resin dolls and sell them around the world. This is a part of my world, so don’t hesitate to take a look at my Instagram page, right there!

Thank you for reading this self-introduction,

I hope it helped you learn more about me!

I am looking forward to hearing from you soon.
Don’t hesitate to contact me by e-mail, phone call, or LinkedIn directly.

Have a nice day,

Best regards,
