Earlier this month, we visited the Facebook HQ in London to attend the MCV Women In Game Awards. I am thrilled to announce I won the Rising Star Of The Year – Development award!

I was nominated against so many other amazing talented women that it was a real shock to win, so I’d like to highlight all of the amazing nominees:
