Dragon Tales: Chen Qin

VFS Digital Design is a highly multicultural program. We get students from all over the world. Being Chinese, I’m very interested in the educational experience of our students from Mainland China, Taiwan, and Hong Kong. I started meeting with them to capture and share their insights. Here. as part of my ongoing series of interviews, Dragon Tales, I speak with current Digital Design student, Chen Qin, about his experience.
