Have your say

A CAPITAL student could have a great career ahead of her in the computer games industry after winning a competition.

Helen Chiu, 20, came out on top in the national online Games Design course, run by computer software firm Adobe.

The nine-week course saw her develop skills in computer game coding as well as animation and photo imaging.

As her prize, Ms Chiu netted a 12-month Adobe Creative Cloud Membership worth £500.

She said: “I’m thrilled to be named winner, especially considering the fantastic work which was produced by the other students taking part.

“I have always been interested in gaming, so the course was a great opportunity for me to learn more about the skills used in the industry.

“This is definitely the ­beginning of more exploration and fun for me.”
