Working in video games as a career

Target audience - Secondary S1 to S3 (11-14 year old), Secondary S4 to S6 (14-18 year old), College
I've been working as a professional translator for more than 15 years, mostly in the video games industry. There are a lot of misconceptions about video games, not only as a job opportunity but also about the risks of playing them.

I can give my insights and advices to parents/carers and help them understand this industry, the opportunities that are there for young people and how much they can learn from them. Also I can talk about how they can understand better the gaming habits of their kids and discuss any queries they may have.
