I am passionate about gaming! I love to play the game in my free time, whether it’s my PS4, my Nintendo Switch or even if it’s just games in my phone. It started when I was about 7. My older brother, Deion, had a Nintendo GameCube, the PS3, and a Nintendo DSI and I’d always go in his room bothering him and eventually he just started to let me play with him. I’ve always grown up being the only girl in the family and have had to adjust to doing things with the boys, gaming was something that my cousins and siblings did pretty often. Years down the line, around 2016, I got back into gaming when my mom bought me a PS4 for Christmas. For about 3-4 years I was addicted and would choose staying at home and playing the game over anything else. At one point, I hit an all time low with myself and started using gaming as an outlet of my emotions, it helped a lot but in turn I started to decline in school. Eventually I pulled through and still to this day love gaming but as I’m growing up and having bigger priorities, I don’t have as much free time to do what I once loved. Although, gaming will always have a place in my heart!
