SAE GAMES ALUMNI, RACHEL TOOMEH

“What I liked about SAE was that exposure to tutors that had real life experience, that set me up for what expectations I should have for the industry. They also offered access to a range of disciplines, everything from programming, to sounds design, to 3D animation. Having that exposure set me aside when I was going for jobs.”
