PixelPop Festival Conference Session:

Why People of Colour Burn Out Quicker Despite Having More Melanin

Sunday, 4:00 pm - 4:20 pm

This is a talk about what burnout feels like if you’re a Muslim woman of colour who lives in a ghetto in South Africa. Burnout is often spoken about in video games but mostly from a white or western perspective and this is very different for people of colour, especially from the global south. I hope to educate people on how to recognise the things in their daily lives that contribute to them burning out quicker than their white counterparts and how to deal with these things or try to prevent them. My talk will also be about how white people can be better allies to the People of Colour in their lives.
