(Video Game Developer)
Birthday: August 13, 1987 (Leo)
Born In: United States
Zoe Quinn is an American video game developer, writer, artist, and activist. She is well-known for being one of the few popular female video game developers in this largely male oriented field. Her popularity also stems from the fact that the games she develops are not the “typical” ones. Her creations are not only bold and unconventional, but are also aimed at helping the players deal with serious issues like depression and online bullying. She doesn’t just aim to entertain the players of her games; she strives to empower them. In addition to being a video game developer, she is also a writer whose works have been published in multiple books and magazines like ‘Vice’ and ‘Cracked.’ After facing severe online harassment that included threats of rape and death, she became a crusader fighting against such unsocial elements that sexually harass women online. As an activist, she co-founded Crash Override, a network of experts to assist victims of online harassment. She has also discussed issues of online safety with major tech companies like Google and Twitter.
