Gaming is not only a passion of mine, but a hobby I want to pursue. I may not be that good, but I’m willing to practice and reach the heights required to get there. I also want to be able to have fun with what I’m doing with other people who have common interests.
I don’t really take on leadership in games because I believe in teamwork and cooperation. If I notice someone is struggling with the game, I’ll try and help them out, to give them tips. The most important part of any game is having fun and not letting the game consume you. But when it comes to real life — although I love cooperation — I tend to take on more of a leadership role when it comes to group projects. Last year, when I was in AP U.S. history, my group and me were assigned to create a Civil war road map. I planned out the road map and what we would place on it and I assigned who would be researching what. Then we all went out together and bought what we needed, bringing our final product to life.
My academics are just as important to me as gaming but I make it my priority to finish any work I have before I get online to play games. There are some days where I won’t play games since I have a lot of home work I have to get finished. And when I don’t have homework, I am mostly on my computer or Xbox. I still make time to work out or go for walks since constantly being in front of a screen isn’t healthy.
I’m currently trying to get a peer-counseling group started at Frontier High school. I will be shadowing a licensed psychologist to better understand how I need to broach topics with my group. As well as next semester I’m going to be in community service class to help people in anyway I can. I will continue to try and get involved even after I graduate. I struggle with severe depression and anxiety so I know how it feels to be alone and not have anyone to talk to or relate to. Therefore, I wanted to start this club.
