From producers to fans, accountants to voice actors, #WeAre celebrates women across all roles in the industry.
The women in this gallery were photographed at video game events and asked to provide a few words to inspire others.
I'm not for sure if love is the most accurate word to describe what gaming is to me. It's been in my life for as long as I could remember and it's such a huge part of who I am. Sometimes it's tough being yourself or I should say dealing with life and all it throws at you. Playing as a character in a video game can sometimes help you work through those challenges and make you stronger because of it! When I'm doing something really tough I always say to myself "Be strong like Lara!" and as silly as it sounds her story and journey in Rise of the Tomb Raider really motivates me!

Other game developers really motivate me to want to start creating my own games. They're all so passionate and that passion is contagious. And I know that if they're able to create such amazing things, then I can too. Additionally, I love the idea of being able to share profound experiences through games, with other people.
