Hey everyone! This'll be my first year participating in EL, and I'm super excited. I learned about this awesome event last year at anime convention Otakon in Baltimore, MD (of which is moving to Washington, DC in 2017) and I signed up. Game Day 2015 came around and I wanted to go head first into this, but I didn't have all that I needed to do it (I had a PS3, but no capture card). This year though I have a good capture card, and a PS3 and PS4 at my disposal! This should be fun.
Why do you Extra Life?
I Extra Life because I want to see kids that are sick in the hospital overcome their sickness, or at least give them hope that there are people out there that are encouraging them to keep strong and try to pull through. ...if that makes any sense.
How long have you been participating?
This'll be my first year, and likely not my last!
What Hospital do you play for and why?
I'm playing for the Boston Children's Hospital because I live in Boston at the moment, and I want to support my local community in any way I can.
Are you a member of one of our Guilds?
No, but if there are any Boston guilds looking for someone to join, sure.
What do you do when you aren't helping kids?
When not helping kids I'm still helping people. I work retail and I help people around my store all the time. It can be aggravating, but it's also rewarding when people come back again and again and they enjoy and respect the service I give them.
Anything else you'd like your fellow Extra Lifers to know about you!
I'm an avid (though not up with the current) anime fan. I used to be more active with it, but work and ...life... caught up with me. I attend 3-5 anime conventions a year too, so there's that. If anyone sees me around at Anime Boston this coming year (my local/home con) hit me up and we'll chat.
