I’ve switched majors three times…

Hey, my name is G. 

So I guess I’ll start off by saying that my name is Gianna Paola Jimenez. But I really prefer being called ‘G’. It’s simple and easy to remember. I am 19 years old and a few months away from being 20 and I’m not too sure how I feel about it. My major is, of course, Communication Design. That being said, I’ve changed my major three times since I’ve been at City Tech and I think I’ve landed right where I’m supposed to be. Before City Tech, I went to the Art & Design High School in East Midtown, Manhattan. I majored in Photography for a year and then finished off my high school career as an Architecture major (yes, there’s a trend here). I loved photography but I felt like I already knew and understood everything that was being taught to me, so I switched over to architecture because I wanted a challenge. And it was definitely a challenge but I made it through and absolutely loved it, but not enough to major in it in college and that is why I am here now.

The Man, the Artist, the Gamer

It is a pleasure to meet you, my name is Jovannie Charles. I am a 21-year-old artist who’s trying to make his way into the gaming for animation industry. I come from a humble family and have a lot of experience in various things. In my free time I like to draw, play video games, or hang out with my friends. One of my favorite sports is soccer, reason being that I was raised on it by my parents. The type of video game I typically play mostly consist of fighting, RPG, or shooters. In my free time I do listen to music, and my favorite genre would be Hip Hop, rap, pop, and sometimes rock and roll. I look forward to learning and growing in this field during this semester.

My Introduction, Call Me Bill

Hello, my name is BingJi Wu, however, I prefer people call me Bill. First of all, I am glad to join in this course as well, because I always can feel my passion for art never dissipate as the time goes by.

I started painting when I was a kid. Probably this is why I am interested in something that relates to art which is this course. Also, the reason why I chose to major in communication design is because I am inspired by the unmatched combination of specialized curricula for the students. Some of the combinations of these courses include the Bachelor of Fine Arts, Bachelor of Science, and Master of Arts. These are some of the careers that I am interested in. It is also worth noting that the institution has several qualified and experienced professors. These are individuals who can steer my career to greater heights of success. Therefore, I am confident that this is the place that will help me to excel in my passion of majoring in design.

In Fact, I used to be an art student when I was in China, which mean I have some art background I guess. So, I think I will have a lot of fun in this course in this year. Let’s work together, I believe our goal is untouchable if we work hard.
