We do have crunch time sometimes and you can’t just take off. And you really have to have a heart for gaming. You have to love gaming, you have to love programming, and you just got to love working. Just stick to it, if you really really want it then its an awesome place because you are not judged on how you look. Often is other jobs with females, here is where you work counts. What I like very much is that my code lines are pounding and not whether I have a nice dress or not, its definitely not the market for fashion orientated females.” See the full clip here where the interview starts mid answer:
