This post is part of a monthly series where I showcase some of my favourite things I’ve seen around the web recently.

I see people all the time looking for UX mentorship and I’d like to be able to offer my services in a way that is achievable for me. I also know that people new to UX often struggle filling up their portfolio with projects before bagging their first role.
So, that’s why I’ve decided to set up the I Am Not My Pixels UX internship programme.
