I arrived at the Foundry a timid and very hesitant fresh graduate in media design and web development. I sat in the office sweaty palmed as Megan gave me my first set of seemingly impossible tasks. I was indeed thrown in at the deep end but it turns out, that is exactly what I needed.
I’ve only been here three weeks but the amount of knowledge I feel I’ve gained is staggering. I came into this practicum half expecting to be well acquainted with the coffee machine, but I couldn’t have picked a better practicum host. Megan bravely trusted me to work with Pixel Foundry’s wonderful clients to ensure I got to truly experience working in the industry.
You can spend thousands of hours in a classroom (and I did) but when you are given the opportunity to really apply that knowledge, that’s what moves you forward.
I can’t thank Megan and Kelly enough for sharing their knowledge, putting up with all my questions, and being super rad.
