DMA Success Story: Creating Better Students

At Digital Media Academy, we’re constantly in awe about our students’ achievements. So much so, we think “DMA” could also stand for “driving major accomplishments”…especially when we hear another success story from a proud parent like Vianey Ojeda.

Digital Media Academy doesn’t only let kids explore their creative interests and help prepare them for a successful career in the digital arts. There’s plenty of evidence that suggests DMA also helps kids become better students. At least that’s what DMA heard recently from Ms. Ojeda, who’s obviously one very satisfied parent.


Vianey and her daughter, Alicia (a former Digital Media Academy camper).

Her daughter, Alicia, has been a DMA student for the past three summers, attending each year for film & video production. Now at age 16, Alicia finds that she’s been selected to participate in the California State Summer School for the Arts’ prestigious “Innerspark” Summer 2011 Film & Video program. Selection for the program is a rare honor, because only 28 participants are accepted in each of the school’s departments. Students completing the four-week program are designated as California Arts Scholars. That’s the State of California’s highest distinction for artistically talented youth…and it’s the type of honor that looks outstanding on a college entrance application.

“Thank you DMA. Because Alicia’s self-confidence in her ability to do well and pursue a career in the film industry is now stronger than it has ever been,” the e-mail message Ms. Ojeda sent us read. “And I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for Digital Media Academy and her instructor, Travis Schlafmann, she would not have reached this goal at such a young age.”

Alicia’s got a proud mother, who credits two things for her daughter’s continuing progress as a budding filmmaker – her “unwavering resolve for the love of her craft…and the phenomenal training by DMA.”

And it doesn’t stop there. Alicia’s Mom has also seen a direct and positive connection between her daughter’s DMA experiences and her growth both as an individual and a student. “I can personally see the difference in not only her maturity level but in her writing and thought processes as well, which has also helped her excel academically by reaching and maintaining a 4.0 GPA thus far during all of her sophomore year.”

“I can honestly say that if it wasn’t for DMA and her instructor, she would not have reached this goal at such a young age.”

Parents naturally want the best for their children and that’s why parents love Digital Media Academy, where kids and teens receive the finest, personalized instruction from leading industry innovators. (That difference in program quality is why DMA was included in a recent selection of the best summer camps in the world.)

In addition, DMA students get a well-rounded summer camp experience with great recreational activities and friendships that can last a lifetime. Bring out the best in your creative child with DMA. Register now for Digital Media Academy’s 2011 Summer Camp. Make sure your child makes the most of their summer – and the most of his or her potential – with expert instruction from DMA.
