Alex Kitt won’t admit how much time he spends playing video games, but it’s a lot, and it’s paid off.
“Ever since I got my first Lego set as a little kid, I’ve been interested in taking things apart to figure out how they work, and ever since I got a Game Boy Advance I’ve loved to play video games. I’ve wanted to put these passions together and make video games for as long as I can remember,” he says.
In Grade 4 he tried to make a video game but quickly realized it required more math skills than he had. But now, wiser, armed with a calculator and supported by a Schulich Leader Scholarship, the first-year computer science student is about to embark on his dream journey.
