I am an avid gamer and I really believe that my calling is to work in the video game industry in any way. I play video games whenever I'm not busy with school or work and I feel that if I got to play video games for my job I would truly never work a day in my life. Right now I'm a history and journalism major and I hope to get my bachelor's degree by May 2014. I'm currently working with the media relations team at New Mexico State and I'm getting my feet wet in the journalism department. At this moment, I want to pursue a career in either sports journalism or video game journalism. Either way, I want to write for a career because I'm good at it and I enjoy it.
Video games have been my life since I found my older sister's NES when I was six and began playing Super Mario Bros. I moved on to the N64 which was the first system that I could say was all mine. I played every game that I could get my hands on by renting or buying. I eventually got a PSOne and began playing RPG games like Final Fantasy. I moved on to a PS2 to get one game, Kingdom Hearts. I loved that game and I moved on to other great titles for the PS2. I got an Xbox and built up my library of video games. Then the current generation of games came and I grabbed a 360 and I was able to finally get a PS3 just this past Spring, and now I find out that the next group of gaming systems are already going to start coming out next year! I'm starting to feel like I can't really keep up with the industry but I plan on keeping up for as long as I can. If I can get a job in the industry then I probably won't have as much worries about keeping up so I'll keep working and keep my fingers crossed.
