I Googled Gambit after listening to this!

I don’t know much about comics, but listening to Sana Amanat’s story about being a Muslim-American woman working at Marvel, without the strong comic background as her male coworkers, made me happy.

Sana is so resilient and strong! She adds a fresh new perspective to Marvel which has broadened their characters and added more cultural diversity.
