I am getting an associate’s degree in Animation and Rich Media.

Ever since I was a small child, I loved watching cartoons. Once I learned about the process of drawing on frames for the film, I was fascinated. At a young age, I watched a behind-the scenes-documentary on the making of Snow White and discovered what the animation industry was like.

I taught myself to animate by drawing sequential frames on paper. After getting my iPad MiniĀ and Apple Pencil, I became more focused on digital animation.

After taking these classes at DMACC, I now see cartoons from a different perspective and can notice the animation principles being applied. Pursuing an animation career is a big dream for me.
