Interview with Microsoft

Is there a role for Tech in building communities?

As an actor, creator, and artist, Ava Lee Scott has always seen worlds in her head. With technologies such as virtual reality and augmented reality, she’s been able to depart the old space of storytelling and bring her worlds to life in a new way—and bring people together, too. Her storytelling platform, AltspaceVR, is a safe space for people from all over the world to come together. Here, cultural barriers are broken down and people are free to be who they are and live the life they want to live. Social video games can do good—and she’s excited and honored to create and be with people who see outside the box.
