I have been competing for more than 10 years in Fighting Games tournaments, fighting to make myself stronger and to prove women are equal to men. My hard work on training and competition have been recognized by the Guinness World Records for being the first female player ranked top three in fighting games tournaments (42 times). Today, I’m traveling all over the world to meet and play all the fighting games fans, and to compete against the world’s best players.
