Exploring a passion for the internet

Aiden Jaeyun Lee chose to move to New Zealand from South Korea to study for two reasons: because he’d heard Auckland was a safe city to live in, and because he was fascinated by the country’s global reputation for its creative and digital industries.

During his time studying creative technologies at Media Design School, Aiden developed a strong friendship with his lecturer, Matt Stevens, who constantly encouraged him to try new things.

A highlight of the course was collaborating with Bachelor of Communications students from Unitec to create a website highlighting stories of unknown soldiers who fought in the First World War.

Aiden particularly valued the time he and his classmates spent discussing their final projects.

We touched on topics including user interface, web and mobile programming and new technologies. It helped us to improve our problem-solving abilities and increase our self-motivation.

Aiden is now a front-end developer for Flipmind, a web and mobile app development company, where he is able to explore his passion for the internet and enjoy Auckland’s “ocean-friendly lifestyle”.
