Graduating senior Jamie Sampson is working toward developing better video games

Jamie Sampson was mostly only allowed to play educational video games growing up. Still, she loved the graphics and design, and developed a passion for them. But it wasn't until much later that she thought a career making video games was an interest or even an option. She's continued to learn about the industry, even landing an internship at Electronic Arts as a gameplay engineer. Now, Sampson wants to use her software engineering degree to follow her passion by making games full-time. *This interview was shot following physical distancing guidelines, and with the interviewers wearing masks
