“I want to get to a point where there are no more firsts. But as I mentioned in my comments, this impact that this has, is not lost on me. I would definitely tip my hat to all the prior women who were leaders and visionaries. And if I can be an inspiration or help, or open doors for any other woman or girl out there, then that’s an incredible accomplishment for me. The importance and effort is not lost on me, and I know that sports is a male dominated industry just as gaming was, and you know we need to continue to break down these barriers. So I am happy to be here and again, thankful for the opportunity.”
