Interesting Project

One interesting project that I did in my time at PBA is the final project for my Graphics Programming class. We were tasked to create a comprehensive project in c++ OpenGL totalling what we learned throughout the semester, and I chose to make a 3D version of the classic 1972 Atari game Pong. I made this game completely from scratch using what I learned in class, and resources from the textbook.


1. The most important thing in my life would have to be my faith. I try my best to put my walk with Jesus above everything else and let it guide everything I do.

2. A close second would be my family. I would do anything to see them prosper and will always be close to them.

3. Lastly, a very important experience in my life genuinely was coming to PBA. I have a whole new life here, with a whole new set of friends, and I wouldn't trade it for the world.
