    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 that they see it as a hobby, with what I had fun with as a child and another thing is to tell them: Look, I want to spend the rest of my life making video games!
