Faces of Unity – Sharlene Tan

I’d encourage others to keep an open mind and never stop learning. Back when I was a college student, I never imagined that I’d wind up in the video game industry, working with languages and the written word. As technology evolves, it’s hard to predict what jobs will be in demand 10 years down the road. I’m glad my career journey led me to where I am now.

Can you share a few fun facts about yourself?

I was born and raised in Singapore, but have lived in many different places: Austin, Houston, Dallas, Hakodate, Tokyo, Oita, and currently, Seattle.

I enjoy translating Japanese song lyrics into English, and also really love karaoke.

I’ve run into Jackie Chan twice – once in a hotel in Canada, and another time in South Africa. He was filming Who Am I? atop Table Mountain.
