Michael Watson

Platform Service Manager, 6 years in education

"I have witnessed firsthand how powerful esports can be in reaching an unreachable group of students. The story of a specific student comes to mind. This student was almost nonverbal because of crippling anxiety in 10th grade. Esports gave this student a way to connect with friends at school. By 12th grade, this student was on the leadership team in our esports club, had become a social person, and earned a scholarship to play Overwatch and design the branding for a college esports team. I want to be able to bring this life-changing experience to as many students as possible."
