By March 2013, I had turned right around, and enrolled in a different school for a degree in none other than 3D Animation and VFX.

Using the “Root Cause Analysis” and “5 Whys” strategies, I shall explore the reasons for these changes I made - what made me deflect from my original course, and then later why I came back to it.
