Yvonne Rizkallah always knew she wanted to enter into a career where she could use her love for computers. But after spending two years studying computer science, she sought out a new program to foster her creativity. After taking a few years off from school, Rizkallah decided to enroll in the animation for game, film and visual effects program at the Centre for Arts and Technology (CAT). “I chose CAT for this program for a few reasons,” Rizkallah says.
“It is one of the only schools in the area offering this kind of program, and I also heard that the instructors in 3D department were absolutely amazing.”
She says instructors know you by name and go above and beyond what is expected of them to help their students.
“The school environment has such a relaxed feel to it, you feel comfortable and can express your creativity.”
Rizkallah completed her training at CAT in October and is now working at DHX Media as a rigger.
“I think that hard work has led to my success,” Rizkallah says.
“The teachers can show you every-thing they know but it’s what you do with it that matters.”
