Eu tive mentoria com a Dhara Luna e foi muito bom. Ela foi rápida e bem prestativa, ajudando a organizar as ideias, tirando dúvidas e levantando pontos importantes pro desenvolvimento do projeto. Futuramente espero mostrar pra ela o projeto mais avançado e fazer mentorias com mentores de outras áreas pra esse projeto!

My goal is to make Brazil an even greater benchmark in the video game industry!

 

When I started in the industry, it was a completely new world for me and I couldn't find much content about the challenges that I faced every day. What helped me a lot at this stage were the people who were willing to have conversations with me, share their stories, and give me advice on which paths to take. I remember that, last year, I sent messages to more than 30 people asking for just one conversation, and, of those 30, only 4 accepted. But these 4 changed my life.

Recently, Amir Satvat (former Principal Publisher of Amazon Games) created a mentorship program called “Reach Out Anytime”, on which professionals from all areas of the gaming industry volunteer for 30-minute mentorships with beginners looking to meet more experienced professionals for guidance. However, this program is not accessible to most Brazilians, as meetings usually need to be in English. So, that inspired me to bring this initiative to Brazil, connecting our great professionals with beginners and fostering our ecosystem to grow even more!
