Life is very short, make everyday count. Think for others before yourself and always be kind.
Healthy competition among your peers is good and remember to celebrate the success of your schoolmates, no need to be jealous, because who you are really competing with is with the rest of the world.

The flexible syllabus helped me gain essential skills that are in demand from the industry such as 3D modelling, prototyping, critical analysis of product research and creative thinking. Constant involvement with peers and teachers definitely polished up my so skills to be resilient, and to work well in teams and interpersonal skills
Don't shy away from opportunities, collaborations or new explorations. Don’t be overwhelmed by homework and remind yourself grades are not everything. Instead, enjoy and do your best for your project like there is no tomorrow, because hard work pays off.

BFA Digital Filmmaking, 2019
ADM has provided me with the opportunity to collaborate and forge relationships with people who share a common interest in making films.
With the support of the faculty, we had the freedom to explore our own creative voice with every film we made and those experiences were most valuable to me in my growth as a filmmaker.

As a young artist and individual, it is important and healthy to push your work in different directions instead of settling or labelling yourself too early. It is also important to be engaged in other activities that ground you in different types of knowledge and skills; life experience translates into maturity in thought and practice.
