Watching Stranger Things, hiking trails, and eating pasta are some of my favorite hobbies. Video Games and Sports have always been two of my main passions. They are both the perfect combo of enjoyment and competition. I am very excited to see eSports gaining so much popularity especially with the rise of Fortnite. One of my favorite quotes actually comes from a video game. “Don’t ever stop. Always keep going, no matter what happens and is taken from you. Even when life is so unfair, don’t give up.” –Ezio (Assassins Creed II)
