"My GRID Lab experience of working on a project (J.A.N.I.S) using the mixed reality course helped me improve my communication and collaboration skills, and it exposed me to working with a really great team. I firmly believe that getting the opportunity to work here also helped me get closer to realizing what I want to do as a career, which is designing intriguing and interactive experiences for others to enjoy!"
