Uclan Games Grad Steph McStea is now...

Steph McStea of @TeaAndMonsters is busy with new ventures.

Not only has Steph recently been named as European student Ambassador for Women in Games 

But she's also just founded -
a place for game students to network, collaborate and grow together.

Last week saw the completion of Steph's Internship at Digital First, part of UCLan's Innovation Lab where she had a great work experience following her MA in Games Design.

Steph said, "It's the last day of my internship at the i-Lab today ): I've learned and grown a tonne since I've been there, so I'm incredibly thankful for the opportunity. <3 The i-Lab team are a lovely bunch and I'll definitely miss them a lot. Nervous but excited to see where my journey takes me from here!

Digital first said, "Today we say a sad and very fond farewell to our lovely design intern Stephanie. Steph is a talented artist and games designer. She recently produced some fantastic artwork for UCLan's Innovation Lab office where she has been based, so we will always have a little piece of her with us. We wish Steph all the very best with her future career."

There's no question that Steph is totally dedicated to games design and she has made so many great contacts in the industry. 

Women in Games have also been super encouraging to Steph . In Sept 2016 Steph was among the women selected in a jam packed ceremony featuring 30 minutes of awards and presentations to honour and recognise some special people and the winners of their Student Competition.
Winners of the Student Competition were awarded by Debbie Bestwick MBE along with Helen Kennedy, Head of the School of Media, at the University of Brighton:
