Testimonials from the organizers

Slide02

"Video games are the ultimate storytelling medium, and women have the most extraordinary stories to tell. I want to give other women the space I didn’t have when I was a teenager, and that might have taken my life in a very differetn direction. Moreover, the WGJ represents a space were we can help foster a sense of sorority and introduce/retain more women in the industry. This so that maybe there will be more diverse and female-centered stories in games.
"

Slide01

WGJ is an opportunity to introduce more people to the video game industry in a safe space. Where everyone can learn and share their passions and values. An event that can help find and grow the talent we have in this industry in Puerto Rico.
