It began with a simple wish to make video games. Now five years later, William Gallego has refined his ambitions, accumulated a wealth of leadership experience and graduates from UBC with an Applied Sciences degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. The former President of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Student Society plans to apply his skills to create a website that synthesizes e-mails for students, and to develop apps that will eventually be sold in the Apple App Store.
