I came from a construction background and as a result of the recession, I decided to re-enter the learning environment. I was in my 30’s and it was a big step but luckily I was accepted to undertake the multimedia course in St. Johns Central College. I was coming from a point where I did not know a lot about multimedia or what it involved. St Johns Central College and the teachers that I encountered in the two years that I was there, allowed me to discover my passion for all aspects of multimedia. It gave me the foundation and the confidence to apply for the BA in Multimedia in CIT where I am currently in my 4th year. The skills and interest that I discovered in St. Johns helped me produce and be involved in international award winning work, allowed me to help out various charities by volunteering the skills I have learned to create promotional videos, websites and an app. Without the influence of St. Johns Central College, I would not be able to achieve these feats… (the course) changed the direction of my life.
