“I first heard about Urban Arts when one of their instructors came to my school’s gaming club—which I didn’t even plan to go to that day. When I signed up I was sure I would not get accepted. I thought it was only for the best of the best. Also, I submitted my application exactly at—if not one minute after—the deadline.
The day I was accepted I was more worried than excited.
Being at Urban Arts, around like-minded people, I’m not afraid to share my love for what I do and that was the push I needed—that push through uncertainty and uncomfortable environments forced me to do instead of just think. I want to use my art and creativity to affect the future of games. I hope to replace the current stigma around games—as time-wasting, violence-inducing, and socially crippling.
If my past self was to look at me now, he would be impressed. And I haven’t even pushed my limits yet.”
