Did you have an idol that brought you to eSports and what fascinates you so much about it?

I was and still admire a female player called Kyanna, as she’s a support main like me, has played competitively since years and won most of the tournaments she played, I wanted to become like her. As I have a competitive spirit and am always looking for challenges to overcome. That's what eSports is and that's why I’m so into it.

What does a typical training day look like for you?

A typical training day for me starts with a healthy meal and fitness training. After that, I relax. Then I watch a few videos of professional players and play ranked games (and/or scrims). At the end, I watch a few games and then the day is already over.

Besides your eSport career, you study full time. How do you reconcile these two pillars?

Especially at the beginning of my studies, it was not easy to reconcile both. Both university and League of Legends demand 100 percent of my attention, so it takes good time management to successfully pursue both. Nevertheless, there usually is enough time left over to train every day. It is exhausting and stressful but that's the price to pay in order to succeed and achieve my dreams. I am just grateful that I can do both things at the same time.

What are your goals for 2022 that you would like to achieve together with epf?

In 2022, with the help of epf, I want to reach a high rank in the game (Grandmaster) and eventually get signed to an ambitious eSports team where I can win tournaments. I also want to meet a lot of people from the women esports scene, especially through bootcamps and maybe through epf events. My biggest goal is to inspire other women for eSports and to be a role model.

To conclude, what advice do you have for young aspiring women in eSport?

My advise for young aspiring women in eSports is to never give up on their goals. Everyone goes through a lot, especially for females there is always sexism, but only the ones who don’t give up can make anything they want possible! It always feels good to prove doubters wrong.
