Geeky Woman Role Model: Kellee Santiago

I’m pretty sure that there are a lot of people out there who play games who have thoughts to themselves: wouldn’t it be super cool to get a degree about making games and then start a game company and make games for a living? However, there are very few people who get to live out […]
