My name is Eva Roberts, and I am currently 3D animation and
media arts. I am currently living in Alabama, and working for the Department of
Veterans Affairs. I am a veteran of the United States Air Force. Also if there are
any veterans there is a Student Veterans Association through the
Art Institute Online (shameless plug). Aske your school about it. If you don't have one. I will get you in touch with the people to start one. At first I was in traditional
universities trying to get a degree in Criminal Justice and realized I didn’t
like it, and life is way too short to get a degree in something you don’t love.
Most of my experience has been in music engineering and production but I
started getting a love for video games, websites and cartoons all over again.
My family always kept me involved with changing technology, probably because my
mom loved Star Trek and Star Wars and always thought the world would be like
that someday. So I guess my real inspiration for starting this degree was my
family. They were always inspiring and positive in anything I wanted to achieve.
I encourage female gamers because it leads into other areas like science and math. Two of my least favorite subjects but they are the most important, so I work on them often and teach them often.

Golden Eye was the second FPS I played the first being Doom . But GE was the first I could play with friends. I still have great memories from that game because it taught me about competive gaming. My mom would even play it with me and my little cousins.

As a veteran who as actually been to war and loves FPS, i think the important thing to remember is it is just a game. Shooting at AI 's or other players in a virtual world is very different than real life. I 'm not sure when the parallel happened ...
