Student Spotlight Stories: Yasmin Mercado


Yasmin Mercado is a junior who first joined VCU to study sculpture, but soon realized her interests lie in the Communication Arts Department. She now works on improving her 3D digital skills through software such as Maya and appreciates learning about software industry standards from professors who have experience in real-world art. She feels the Comm Arts department does a great job of offering students options and not tying them down to one subject. The program has helped build her confidence and improve her skills. Yasmin plans to enter the game industry after she completes her studies at VCU. Her words of wisdom are to “take time to explore your options and try many different classes to discover what part of the major you enjoy.”
