What Animation Mentor Students are Saying

I was a little bummed for being placed in class 2, kinda was hoping to go for class 3. I was still happy cause at least I was placed in a higher class and that meant a lot icon smile Advanced Placement And now I’m so grateful I started on class 2, I would’ve been lost on class 3. I learned so much! I loved the AM community, everyone helps and is so nice. I’m used to the work environment where people just don’t wanna share their knowledge that much cause they don’t want anyone to get “ahead of them”. So coming to a community where everyone is sharing and helping is so refreshing and makes me so happy icon biggrin Advanced Placement So thank you all.

Thank you all so much- everyone at AM!!! This school was by far the best decision I ever had the pleasure of making, and I’ve loved every minute of it. From the online resources and tech support to the mentors and classmates, to the CTN meetups and 10yr anniversary party- Thank you for everything you all do for us. I’d definitely like to join the mentor roster one day to always be a part of Animation Mentor!
