The biggest achievement for me at RU was developing a positive attitude and the confidence of public speaking when proudly showcasing my artwork in front of people. I was trained to think critically and develop my technical software skills.

I will always be grateful to all my lecturers who had nurtured me into a professional graphic designer!
