It’s May the 4th today, also known as Star Wars day. What started out as a personal mental health day off from work, soon shaped up to be an even more amazing day! I guess you can say the Force was with me.
I had submitted my portfolio and application earlier this week to RED Academy and was just told today that I GOT IN!! The lady on the phone told me that I have an amazing graphic design background and that they would be happy to offer me a spot in their program. For those wondering, RED Academy is Canada’s leading tech school for digital media and technology aimed at web designers, digital creators, developers and digital marketers of tomorrow. It started out in Vancouver and has now opened up a Toronto location, with classes starting on May 9.
Over the next 30 weeks I’ll be taking courses in Web Development, UX Design, and Digital Marketing. I’m so excited and can’t wait to expand my skillset, open doors to more job opportunities in our ever growing tech industry, and of course to be able to offer more valuable services to all my clients. It’s been a goal of mine and now that I have this opportunity (it also helps that the school is literally a 5 minute walk from where I work!) I’m taking it and running with it! I’ve never been more excited about going back to school, but here I am.
If you’re in Toronto or Vancouver, I recommend checking their courses out! http://www.redacademy.com
May the Fourth be with you!
