    Getting out of my comfort zone and trying out new skills and developing more knowledge adding up to the level of my abilities are the things I enjoyed during my training. Improving whenever I receive and do the activities. Never be afraid or hesitant to improve or develop more skills.

    Senior Animator
    I loved animation since I was 8 years old.  Instead of pursuing my course in Mechanical Engineering, I decided to grab the opportunity to be trained as an animator in Cordillera School of Digital Arts Inc.  Now, I am very happy working at Xentrix Toons Inc. for 2 years while enjoying the climate of my hometown, Baguio.
