Everyone can and should be a gamer

While we know that these are just games, a true gamer gets pretty serious about it.

Partly because the spoils go to the victors, and some drops are rare.

Then there is also the competition factor, and we can be competitive.

Games can help build that spirit while also helping build teamwork.

You also get used to overcoming your failures by being a gamer.

That competitive spirit is alive within us girls.

We are out there proving ourselves in the digital field of battle.

I prefer to play support, but don’t let anyone tell you that girls can’t be tanks if they want to!

I am anxiously waiting for Lost Ark to launch!

I am leaning toward playing a bard.

What is your favorite role?

Get after it and go play… LEEEROOOY JENKINS!
