Even as a kid, Lenovo Legion ambassador Paolo Umpa, better known online as Wartortoise, knew that gaming would help him catch ’em all and succeed in life. In fact, Umpa’s family introduced him to gaming, setting him on the path that would one day make him Wartortoise.

“I was given a Game Boy when I was in grade school, and Pokémon Crystal was the first game I ever played,” Umpa told Digital Life Asia.

According to Umpa, gaming isn’t just entertaining, but also educational.

“Gaming’s fun since I get to connect with different people. I played with an 11-year old, and he’s way better than me in League of Legends hahaha! It’s very cliché, but it’s still true — more than the pure excitement that you get from playing, it also teaches you camaraderie and teamwork. Growing up, video games taught me a lot and I’d say that it’s one of my main sources of learning English (other than TV). It also introduces you to many things. God of War: Chains of Olympus fueled my interest in Greek mythology, and Octopath Traveler opened me to different life perspectives,” he said.

As a young girl, Lyka Mea saw her older sister playing The Sims. Little did the future Lenovo Legion ambassador know that this moment would change her life.

“My older sister was the one who introduced me to gaming. I saw her playing The Sims back in the day and I just had to try it out for myself. We eventually started playing Ragnarok Online, and to this day, it continues to be one of my guilty pleasure games,” Mea told Digital Life Asia.

According to her, gaming completely changed her life. She even noticed that her “wants” started to lessen.

“Everything became simpler for me. It felt like as long as I had gaming, I could be content with my life. I know it sounds so deep, but it is what it is. On the plus side, gaming has opened new career paths for me as well, especially in the realm of esports. I love being in this industry and I wouldn’t have it any other way,” she said.
