Since then, her skills have flourished and she has explored various programs in the Adobe Creative Cloud Suite, meriting a Rich Media Certificate in Adobe Flash CS6. Her videos have earned over $14,000 for herself and for her school, and she has even traveled to Michigan, Washington DC, and San Francisco to attend various award ceremonies. Animation isn’t only something she loves; it’s a medium for her to spread powerful messages and inspire others to make a change for the better.
