Hello guys my name is Shanice Jefferson. I am 23 years old and recently got accepted to attend Capilano University in Canada to study Visual Effects and animation. Ever since I was little I enjoyed cartoons, video games and movies. I was always fascinated in how they created things like that. That is when I knew what I wanted and made it my goal to become a VFX Supervisor! I like leading, working with a team and seeing final outcomes become art.
I have had a few setbacks in life including financially and physically. In 2013 I became ill and it interrupted my studies. I could not work anymore, could not be social and was bedridden for a year and a half. During my sickness I still animated because I still could use my fingers. After the illness I wanted to get back in school but due to medical bills I could not study abroad in my field. So I took a turn to go in the medical field. I graduated there with a 4.0 and ranked number 2 in my class. I went on to work in a doctors office but it is not my dream. I decided I am not going to let anything get in the way of my dreams anymore. I am going to leap and chase after it like I do as a skydiver. I am a very hard worker, determined and always love a good challenge. I will be a innovative artist who is going to shake this industry.
I will be starting in the Fall of 2017 and whatever I raise here will go to my tuition, living expenses, deposits, permits etc.
Here is my website that shows some of my work!
