I have always been a gamer. From the first day I was lucky enough for my parents to buy an old compaq computer for my room, I loved playing video games. Back then I would play games like the Sims, RollerCoaster Tycoon and Age of Empires. The one thing I loved about games is they let me build. They let me choose how I wanted something to grow and compound on it step by step.

I want to make a living creating these wonderful experiences for someone else. Creating games is ultimately what I want to do. Currently, I’m in school for Computer Science, which is the backbone of the information and skills I need to start working toward my goal when I graduate. One of my next steps is to contact and work for a game company on an internship during my next Summer Break. My dream would be to work for the likes of Blizzard Entertainment or Riot Games. I would want to build a game that let anyone playing it feel like I did all of those years ago. I know this essay states of goals I would set, but these are real goals. I stretch and claw as much as I can to make them a reality, and this scholarship would help me reach my dream.

My essay is a dare to anyone reading it. I dare myself to create, but I dare you to play.
