and "Street Fighter," and in large scale competitions such as the World Cyber Games and The Iron Man of Gaming. She is currently recognized as the highest, consistently top-ranking female "Guitar Hero" player in the world, placing Top 3 in the US for "Guitar Hero 3" and Top 5 in the world for "Guitar Hero: World Tour." Ciji picked up her first Nintendo controller when she only about four years old, cutting her teeth on "Mario Brothers," and began gaming competitively when she was 15 years old, turning it into a career in 2006. As one of the most recognizable names on a short list of top female gamers in the world, Ciji has spent years fighting criticism and negativity to help raise the profile of women in the traditionally male-dominated industry. Ciji is actively involved in gaming-related charity auctions and raising money for organizations including Starlight Children's Foundation and Child's Play. Ciji was a contestant on the first season of Syfy's "WCG Ultimate Gamer" competition series.
