    Being able to teach at Image Campus is a very good experience for me. Imagine coming from the interior, studying a video game career… It was already very difficult to explain to my family that I wanted to dedicate myself to making video games. It is one thing for them to see it as a hobby, which I amused myself with as a child and another thing is to tell them: Look, I want to spend the rest of my life making video games!
