This year let’s live to our hearts deserve. Find solace in our own strengths. Conquer our demons. Let’s grow into the Queens that were meant to reign and not be controlled. I pray this prayer to every one of you who reads this.
May you kick butt in 2019.
Thank you to everyone who has supported me through my social, blog, Youtube, streams, or anything I do! Being a full-time content creator has been a struggle since I embarked in August of 2018. Coming into 2019, I am more certain and confident 2019 will be a year for explosive growth! Looking forward to sharing that with you all!

Please join me at my panel at #PAXWest 2018 – “Latinx in Games: We Are Here and You Belong Here Too” occuring Saturdaying September 1st at 3:30-4:30pm in the Cat Theater. Incredibly honored and extremely excited to be fostering a community for Latinx from every part of the world.
The Latinx community is filled with a strong, vibrant, and colorful culture that is reflected by the diversity of our roles spread all over the gaming industry. We’re fostering a community where Latinx can meet, exchange ideas, and grow.
You don’t have to be fully fluent in Spanish or raised completely Hispanic to be included here. We want to share our cultures, our struggles, and our triumphs with the entire Latinx community and our allies, in the hope that we inspire our next generation of developers.
Honored to be joined by:

The World Health Organization (WHO) recently added a new “Gaming Disorder” diagnosis, described as a pathological addiction to video games. Breaking things down and offering an alternative perspective, is Psychology and Data Analytics expert in eSports and video games, as well as the founder of GirlGamerVogue.com, Narz.
In this exclusive podcast interview led by GGT Founder Adesina “Desi” Sanchez, Narz explains the psychology behind video game design, how it intersects with Positive Psychology, and offers advice to those who are dealing with an overuse of video games, as well as a less pathological view of why young people are so drawn to them.

With this new “Gaming Disorder” diagnosis from the World Health Organization, I thought it was time to roll up my sleeves and get my hands dirty talking about the topic since no one seemed to be trying. Join me this week on Games Geek Tech where I offer a new perspective on video game addition using positive psychology and game design.
Tune in and listen to my 3-min break down starting around the 90-minute mark:
