I fell in love with video games after high school. I believe that the dualities they exhibit: between art and play, intellect and emotions, contemplation and agency, are the dualities we encounter in our everyday lives. In their ideal form, video games could be one of our best teachers of how to live. In 2021, as a female Game Development student at Algebra University, I was chosen to be the recipient of the Generation Google Scholarship: for Women in Gaming among other students from Europe, the Middle East and Africa, with 7000 euro of financial support. This is a scholarship given by Google and Google’s cloud gaming service Stadia to support students pursuing gaming degrees and to promote gender equality in the video game industry. I wouldn’t be able to receive this award if I wasn’t a Game Development student, and the opportunities like these are one of the reasons I encourage people to take a formal education in the fields they love.
