Hi! My name is Carla, and I live in Lisbon, Portugal.
I've been into games since, I'd say, the late 90s? Since then, gaming became a part of my life. I used to translate FFVIII to a child I used to babysit - no dictionary used! - when I realised I quite enjoyed it.
Unfortunately, I never pursued it, convinced that I would never be successful, so I ended changing careers to IT. I felt that people wouldn't take me seriously if I revealed my preference for a career in the videogaming industry.
A recent life event made me stop and rethink my life. Looking at what I've been doing these last years, I've been trying to learn skills for the sake of having a job. But it's not what I truly want.
I have a BA in Foreign Languages (English, French, and Spanish), and I'm such a language nerd (but an awful linguistic) that I picked up programming as well. That said, at the moment, I'm trying to get into Game Localization. I also want to put my C/C++ knowledge to use (maybe in hacking?).
Sorry for the long text, I tried to keep it short and relevant.
