Haitians in America: This Industrial Designer seeks to ‘Speak Differently’ on new language app


By Bianca Silva

Sheilla Sanon wants to make learning a new language a bit easier. Earlier this year, she developed Lexiconvo, an app that will soon be available on iPhone devices, which allows the user access to resources from articles to podcasts in their desired language. Even more fascinating: the user can connect with tutors and translators that suit their needs.

Sanon speaks with the Haitian Times on the inspiration behind her app and her career in industrial design.

Congratulations on your newest product, Lexiconvo. How did you come up with the concept? What inspired you to create it?
