Jamie Kelly
Georgian’s experienced faculty and modern facilities helped lay a solid foundation on which I stand today. The experience and fundamental skills learned through the Interactive Web Design and Development program (now titled Interactive Media Design – Web) allowed me to land my dream job changing the world in Silicon Valley. I proudly wear my Georgian College sweater, and I’m honoured to represent Georgian when asked where I graduated. I cannot wait to see what else the future holds.
