As I travelled down to Wembley Arena to take part in a press day dedicated to esports journalists and notable people within the community, I couldn’t help thinking how surreal it all felt. Representing www.esports-news.co.uk, the outlet that published by debut article, and entering the professional world was slightly nerve-racking but entirely worth it. During the media day I got to meet my idols, the professional CS:GO players I had been watching for over three years and had the opportunity to interview a countless number of them. Since then I have had my pre-event summary published on Esports News UK’s website and have another project in the works ready to be uploaded and published very soon.
I just wanted to say thank you to Dom Sacco, the editor and founder of www.esports-news.co.uk, for publishing my articles and for giving me the opportunity to attend the media day. Also, I’m very grateful to Mike Stubbsy, freelance-journalist, for speaking with me and giving me some valuable advice during the press day.
