“So much happened in four years, and every moment was precious to me. There was a lot of fun, learning, and great experiences. I'm from China, so studying at Sheridan made me 12,000 km away from my home. At first, I had some worries and challenges, but as things unfolded I started to see all the beauty of this country.”

– Tianyi Zhong, Honours Bachelor of Animation student from China
