Simon RadGrad #2 Grad Card for Daughter

My daughter received her Bachelor's degrees in Animation & Art History from Kansas City Art Institute KCAI in KC, Missouri in May 2014. She returned home to live with us (welcomed her since I missed her while she was away) and worked at Star Bucks and did free lance animation work for a CA company while living at home here. She started Master's Animation program at University of Texas at Dallas in 2015. In 2015 she began working as an intern in the quality assurance division for a company, GearBox, that creates games for gaming devices. 6 mths later she was made a contractor in the art/animation dept at GearBox. In 2017 she was hired full-time (they counted her intern & contractor time towards her full-time) salary at Gearbox. In May of this year 2018 she will receive her Master's degree in Animation from University of Texas at Dallas UTD. As part of her Master's program project she published a book on Animation. I have seen my daughter in a cap & gown 5 times (pre-school, Kindergarten, 8th grade, high school, KCAI) and look forward to seeing her once again wear a cap & gown. We are so proud of her! You can see many of her artwork creations on my blog right sidebar.
