Hello!

Hello! My name is Liza Kochan and I am a senior in Oak Ridge High School, TN. Originally, I am from Russia, but I have lived in America for the past seven years. My school is truly amazing and I feel really blessed to live in this great community. Science, history and math are my favorite subjects. In the future, I hope to study the colorful realm of Computer Science and Game Design greatly, as well as hone my animation and digital design skills. Despite the fact that my journey is just beginning, I am looking forward to the world waiting for me.

My Goal

A concept that really excites me is the pure idea of games and game design. One downside to plain animation, which is seen in movies, is that the person watching is only an observer, and has no influence on the story. In video games, however, you become part of the story and one with the world. And it's even better to be the one creating those worlds, as there are no limits and nothing is impossible!
