"As an immigrant, it's easy to feel out of place in a new country, but Point Park not only has given me the tools and support to become a better artist and animator, but also a place to call home."

Regina Sanchez Gonzalez '23

Why did you choose Point Park University’s animation program?

When I was looking for a school, I saw some pieces created by students on Instagram, and after reading the curriculum I decided I wanted to study here. Also, as a commuter, I was very happy to find the major I wanted in a school so close to home.

Tell us about the work you do as an intern with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

I work on editing and preparing player imagery, and creating graphics and animations to be shown in games and on other media.

How have Point Park’s animation classes and faculty helped you excel in this internship?

My professors have given me the tools and set a clear path for me to follow when it comes to creating amazing things. My classes have provided me with the knowledge I need to solve problems, offer different ideas and work with quick deadlines.

Why would you recommend Point Park to a prospective student?

The professors are really experienced and ready to share their knowledge with us. The faculty and students have built a tight community where we strive to help each other reach our best potential and find our voices as artists.

What are your career goals?

I would like to work as an artist and eventually grow into a chief creative officer position, or even open my own animation studio.

Is there anything else you would like to add?

As an immigrant, it's easy to feel out of place in a new country, but Point Park not only has given me the tools and support to become a better artist and animator, but also a place to call home.
