About This Event

At this remote panel event, we will host GA alumni from our immersive courses. Together, we will discuss how they made the decision to join GA, how they transitioned into their new careers since graduating, their experience with the program, and advice for those considering similar paths.

What to expect?

Do you want to learn more about General Assembly's courses and discover what it's like to be a GA student? Come and listen to several alumni of GA's programs talk about their experiences before, during and after their classes.

Our alumni's stories will cover such topics as...

  • why they decided to take the class they took at GA
  • what went into their decision
  • what the experience was like taking a course online
  • what is has been like finding a new career post-course
  • and, of course, answer questions from our event attendees!

About the Instructor

Oscar Aquino Photo

Interactive Graphic Designer, SEPHORA

I am a product and experience designer with a passion for visual storytelling.

I thrive in a state of play when it comes to problem-solving. I fall in love with the problem at hand and find joy in all the possibilities the problem presents. Through thorough research and understanding of our goals, problems become opportunities for growth and a way to improve our lives.

Ever since I started my journey as a photographer I used my craft to help immortalize special moments. From concerts to speaking engagements to portraits, every experience taught me something I could incorporate into my real life.

Making moments memorable is an energizing source of happiness for me. Creating powerful user-centered experiences can help shift the narrative on technology and leave an everlasting and positive imprint in people’s lives.
