Coverage of UCI eSports Girls Summer Camp in L.A. Times

The L.A. Times did a feature on the summer camp!

Female gamers, no strangers to online harassment, learn ways to combat discrimination during summer camp at UCI

From the article:
Kim Phan, director of eSports operations at Irvine-based gaming company Blizzard, said that one way to encourage more girls to game is to start early.

“Things like this camp are teaching them that gaming is a normal thing to do for fun,” Kim Phan said. “Gaming is often portrayed as the guy sitting alone in the basement playing games all day. When the media shows gaming in that light, it hurts what we’re trying to do.”
