Annie Lawrence- BAFTA Young Game Designers Awards @annielawrencee

Today Danny talked to Radio Verulam's very own Annie Lawrence, who aside from being a studio assistant here at Radio Verulam, has also entered the BAFTA Young Game Designer's Awards.  Annie is studying Computer Science at A-Level and entered the Game Concept Award.  She is currently a semi-finalist, and if selected will be one of 50 finalists who will visit the BAFTA HQ and attend the award ceremony.  If she is one of the 4 winners, she will visit Google HQ and many other places within the gaming industry.  She has been selected to be a semi-finalist out of entrants throughout the country.  
While talking to Danny, Annie stressed the need for more females to become involves in STEM fields, where there is a severe lack of women.  Annie said that one of the reasons she entered the award was to encourage more young women to get involved in computer technology.   If she wins, she will be only the second female ever to win the award in her age category.
