She frequently won awards (including cash prizes) in news papers or  artistic contests as well as scholarships since the early 1990s as a young child.

She attended classes at the U-ARTS in Philadelphia on Scholarship regularly in high school on the weekends for a few years, and graduated from the Art Institute of Philadelphia for Computer Animation Specializing in Traditional Animation.

She Graduated from BCIT having studied some "Advertizing Art & Design" (old school analogue Graphic Art) and has a Diploma in "Environmental Studies" Sciences, and her class was hand picked by Vice President Al Gore to work on G.L.O.B.E. and to attend The Earth Summit in Helsinki in 1998 which she turned down to study at the U-ARTS and THEN when to Germany in July & August.

She had been planning to attend CAL-ARTS by 2008, but the World Economy had a massive 777 point drop and the market crashed, which devastated her for several years.
