First Person: Ash Sweetring

As a neurodiverse aspiring game dev who struggled through college and eventually found her own way into major studios, Ash Sweetring is a phenomenal ambassador for the talent, diversity, and commitment on Activision Blizzard teams. She was a perfect debut subject for the video and first-person essay packages I produced in the First Person series, which documents colleagues’ stories of personal triumph over adversity in their careers. Her story has gone on to become one of the all-time most popular employee spotlights on Blizzard’s external channels. Another piece in the series, about multi-talented Blizzard colleague Cora Georgiou, was later picked up for a profile by a popular gaming media outlet.
