Previous Student Spotlight

I’m originally from Costa Rica but have lived in Southern California most of my life. Prior to this program, I earned an Associates in Language Arts and Communications and a Bachelors in Electrical Engineering. I have always liked design and it wasn’t until I found this program that I thought I could seriously pursue a career in the field. The digital world is the future and I enjoy learning about how we communicate through web design and online communication.
