I cannot even begin to express how thankful I am for the opportunity. I applied for this program to further my understanding of Game Design. When I got accepted, I had no idea what would come out of those two weeks. It was my first time traveling alone, and I was extremely scared, but everyone at Northeastern helped me feel comfortable and made the trip from Chicago to Boston worth it! This program gave me a glance into what could be my future and I could not be any more grateful for this experience.
