Find a pocket skill and be able to translate that into how it’s applicable to the gaming industry. Don’t just say “I want to be in the game industry.” Articulate what you want to do in it and how you’ll impact it. Don’t compromise who you are. Don’t be afraid to reach out to other women in the field to mentor you. We are happy to help usher in the next generation of women.

Being in the competitive Smash Bros. Melee community has introduced me to people I'd never have met otherwise. The diversity of the players is unparalleled: I've made friends of all ages from around the world, whom have unique backgrounds and stories. The breadth of these friendships has certainly shaped my understandings of people and thus, my ability to empathize.
