AERIEL MATTHEW CRUZ now thrives on an entirely different path from what he planned to take before.


Aeriel Matthew Cruz is a Computer Science student here at MINT. Formerly enthusiastic about the digital arts, he recalls a moment in his computer class in high school that made an impact on him, and made him take up an entirely different program in college.

Now on his fourth year here, he grew to love programming as much as he loved doing art before. Then, he saw an opportunity to try both through MINT’s Up Arrow, an elective class on Game Development offered here. 

In this new Weave Profile episode, Aeriel shares about his realizations as a CS student and how the MINT elective gave him a chance to apply and challenge what he learned. W
