Hello everyone as you might not have met me before I've been involved with this accessibility forum for a little while now but not too long but I want to share that the IGDA awarded 25 scholarship winners to the game design conference in San Jose and I was selected as one of the game design students.  I believe I am the first Art Institute online student to be chosen for this award looking at the people awarded from the link below.  I look forward to meeting up with Michelle Hinn to plan with her the best strategy to benefit me at the conference.  This is a really good arrangement and perhaps the first for a game design student with a disability and part of the accessibility sig I bet this might be a first for you guys but I'm not sure.  I look forward to visiting as many opportunities I can.  Thanks everyone for the incredible environment here.  Now I have to finish up some homework save up and hopefully get a good deal on a laptop before I leave.

The local sports radio station for Baltimore Orioles Steve Davis, who recently did a television interview about me and my friend Oriole Jay Gibbons, is helping me with some expenses on the trip getting a laptop through perhaps a donation from best buy to help me out to get to the conference.

Sincerely.
Robert
