Gemma (She/Her) has been gaming since she was able to hold a controller and button smash, now she does a little less smashing, more thinking in games like Apex Legends, Dead by Daylight, New World and more. When she isn't gaming she can be found cocooned in blankets whilst bingewatching anime, she's likely watching shoujo and on the edge of tears.
