As the gaming scene in the Philippines matures, Bianca believes that it can evolve from simply being a fun community into a sunshine industry that can employ Filipinos, even during the pandemic. “As a gamer myself, I dream that gaming would open more doors of opportunities for everyone. Gaming has transcended its initial purpose of being a source of entertainment and has shown the great potential of being a career, be it in the frontend or backend of the business. I am a living testimony of it, along with my fellow gamers,” Yao adds.
