What made you decide to pursue your degree in WDOC?

I have always had a interest for creating websites and coding. I know that it is something that I will really enjoy doing for the rest of my career.

What has been the biggest thing you have learned in your classes?

To keep it short, I would say graphic design and coding has been the biggest things I have learned in my classes. I had never used Photoshop or Illustrator before this program and now I find myself learning more and more each day (Whether it was during my first semester or self teaching through various YouTube videos). It seems like I learn something new with coding as every week goes by. I am excited to see what new things I will be able to do with JavaScript this semester.

What have you learned in your classes that you have already applied to your job?

I have applied a lot of the Photoshop and InDesign skills that I have learned to my current job. I have also created a portfolio site for myself to show the various work that I have done throughout this program.

What are your career aspirations?

I am hoping to get a job working for a sports team as either a web developer or graphic designer. If this doesn’t work out, being a web designer for any company will be good for me.

What accomplishment are you the proudest of achieving?

I would have to say completing this program in a year. There has been some times where it has been tough but I know it will be worth it in the end.
