Hi, I’m Naj.
I’m an Adobe Certified Expert and Instructor, photographer, videographer, graphic designer, and Behance streamer—or, to simplify things, I’m a creative. You may know me as one of those, all of them, or even none of them. This is my place on the internet to share my journey and give back to the communities that have been such a huge part of my life.
I’ve been a full-time creator for over 5 years, since I won Adobe Certified Associate (ACA) Design Championship, and then paced up as Adobe Certified Expert on 2018, becoming an Instructor teaching Adobe nation-wide till today. It’s been a hell of a ride I would say, being a lady and started young in this industry with Software Engineering background. I started out in wedding industry working as a videographer and editor, running my own video production company, A Lifetime Projext (featured in Pesona Pengantin) creating commercial and creative content, and since then, I’ve been all in as content creator cum educator launching my own educational website, Sharingbasics -providing various of training to people, making the work that I’m most passionate about and creating content online that helps others excel with their craft.
In 2021, I was invited by Adobe as a speaker for Adobe MAX 2021 where I shared my experience in Creating Impactful Videos That Connect with The Audience globally! (thank you Adobe!)
