Ada Tam began her professional journey on the trading floors of Wall Street, later serving as a client advisor at UBS. Drawn to creative problem solving, she ventured into product design, collaborating with clients such as the Embassy of France. This deep immersion in design further kindled her interest in the power of animation as a medium for visual storytelling, leading her to contribute to Sony Pictures Animation's “Young Love” on HBO Max.

Currently, Ada serves as a Product Manager at the Emerson Collective's XQ Institute, an Edtech non-profit co-founded by Laurene Powell Jobs and Russlynn Ali, dedicated to reshaping the high school experience for diverse communities. Throughout her dynamic career, Ada remains inspired to blend technology, design, and storytelling to drive meaningful social change.
