Witness Amira Virgil Change the Game for authentic representation in gaming. Her Sims 4 mod pack is inspiring girls who code, and women in the gaming industry.

As an avid streamer and Modder for The Sims 4 game, Amira was frustrated when she couldn’t create characters that reflected who she was.

Her custom packs have been downloaded more than 1 million times to date.
