Highlighting Our Amazing Women in Esports

Posted by Eric Aaberg March 9, 2021 in Team News

To celebrate #InternationalWomensDay, we are highlighting our amazing women a part of the UT Dallas Esports Team & Program. Without further adieu, let me allow them to introduce themselves and their favorite quotes/experiences within our program:

Olivia Johnson – Junior, Global Business, Student Head of Events
I’m so happy to have gotten involved in such a supportive community and to play games while doing it!

Avery Carter – Sophomore, Biology & Criminology, Broadcasting Lead 
Embrace others for their differences, for that makes you whole.

Noureen Hoq – Sophomore, Neuroscience & Biology, Overwatch Team Manager
Being among other women in esports has left me with proof that it’s not a dream.

Emilee Wolfe – Junior, Psychology, Rocket League Team Manager 
Sometimes we only see how people are different from us. But if you look hard enough, you can see how much we’re all alike.

Kelsi Tresko – Senior, Critical Media Studies (ATEC), Content Creator Lead
Being a woman in gaming has pushed me to be a positive influence and let other women know that there is a place for them in this industry too!

A special thank-you to each and every talented woman a part of our program – each of them holds a crucial role in our team and helps impact hundreds (if not thousands) of students at The University of Texas at Dallas and in gaming/esports.
