It has 100% helped me be prepared for future employment. I feel I have the necessary knowledge to apply to a real life job and career.
The advice I would give any student of the academy is; Yes it is hard but it is worth it! When you are feeling demotivated, just attempt to commit to half an hour, the creative juices will soon start flowing!

Knowing that I could be creative allowed me to push myself more in the assignments to really produce something that was original.”
