When you first started gaming? I've been gaming for as long as I can remember. I started with PC and the original Gameboy. It wasn't long before I was hooked to multiple platforms. first tournament or competition? I've never professionally competed but since the age of thirteen, I've helped various places (Walmart, GameStop, local schools) set up tournaments in the past. I prefer attending events so I can capture the story of what happens and relay it in written form. why you got into gaming? Gaming more or less saved my life. I grew up around gaming, but never fully took to it myself until I was around twelve. Online gaming opened up a way for me to talk to and communicate with others who were passionate about gaming. Through gaming I learned and am still learning new ways to cope and face my agoraphobia, ADHD and borderline personality disorder. Gaming allows me to lead on teams, learn new strategies and feel like I'm actually being heard. Gaming is a hobby and passion for some, but for me it's considered life. It's the only way I've ever been able to express myself and through it I'm reaching others and passing on the same tools. favorite game? Soul Seeker (mobile game by Com2Us) is my favorite game. hobbies outside of gaming? Fiction writing & singing are my hobbies outside of gaming. dream job? I'm already working my dream job. I'm an esports journalist for SetToDestroyX and wouldn't have it any other way.
