Kids these days are fortunate because their are institutions like iACADEMY that offer programs with focused tracks in animation, graphic illustration, robotics, audio production and even app development. I went on a tour of the campus recently and was impressed that those who are about to enter senior high can already begin their education and training in media, graphic arts and information technology. iACADEMY makes sure that they have active industry practitioners as part of their teaching staff so the training isn’t just in theory but more the practical side.
If you are a budding artist, audio producer, multimedia artist, animator, app/game developer or IT specialist, you might want to check out iACADEMY’s programs and see how they can help you become a future game-changer.
Days before my One Gospel talk, my external hard drive got busted and I had to take it to the recovery center. While I was able to get my presentation together, my files refused to open even if I worked on a Mac and opened the same files on a Mac.

If you look at their titles, you would be intimidated but I truly appreciated their transparency on the realities and challenges of leadership.

Have you ever come across a celebrity you admire so much for the looks and talent, only to be disappointed after hearing a live interview on television? How about politicians and the way they answer questions thrown at them during ambush interviews?

Since we live in a democratic country, we are all entitled to share our opinions; we never know when our personal thoughts on a national issue might be needed, so it pays to know and be prepared.
