At GIX, you are not only learning in class, you are also learning from your classmates. We are always doing projects and working in teams. Most of us come from different backgrounds, and you always have a different point of view. A year ago, it would have felt impossible for me to pitch ideas to companies like Boeing, Nintendo, and Microsoft and now I'm working with them, which is something great.
