Change of Program
My name is Laura-May and I have been, since March 2022, the Graphic Designer at Middle. I’ve had a rocky road to where I am today, and I’m sharing it with you in this short blog post.
A Dream Program
Upon graduating from high school, I was determined to go into medicine. To do so, I enrolled in health science. However, I quickly realized that I did not have a passion for this field. I questioned myself for a long time on my choice of a university program, taking into account my interests and passions. I have always been very good at math, and so when it was time to choose a university path, I chose a bachelor’s degree in mathematics. After some thinking, I realized I didn’t fit into this program and decided to quit.
A Realistic Program
The lack of interest I had in this program made me think about my ambitions. In choosing another university program, I took all of these reflections into consideration. I then decided to enroll in the Bachelor of Industrial Design (object design). After my first week, I knew right away I was in the right place, or at least on the right path. I also realized I had hated my higher education until that moment. In this program, I learned the basics of design, 3D modelling, drawing, etc. After one year, I came to the conclusion that it was not exactly the right program for me, as the drawing part was too demanding.
An Ideal Program
At that point, I decided to consult a guidance counsellor who strongly recommended that I go to college to study technology, such as multimedia integration and 3D animation. So, I enrolled in the multimedia integration technique. I loved this program from beginning to end. I had the chance to get to know the world of video games, programming, website and mobile application creation, video editing, photography and graphic design. In my last semester, I had to choose an internship in a company to complete my training.
From School to Reality
I had a very disorganized first internship experience, and I made the decision to quit to look for another internship. That’s when I came across the Middle’s internship offer for a Graphic Designer. When I arrived, I immediately felt at ease and knew I would fit in with the team. This proved to be true, as, after my internship period, I was hired as a full-time Graphic Designer.
In conclusion, I can truly say that I found the job and work environment I always dreamed of, with inspiring and dedicated women, through a program that really suited me. This work experience only confirms my great interest in graphic design and technology, and I am enormously grateful for this golden opportunity.
