My Advice

Get involved and add value to an organization by offering administrative support. In esports, this can often be done from the comfort of your own home. Continue to do work and work as hard as you can. If you want to get involved in esports, start volunteering for local tournaments and events. If they don’t exist in your area, be the person that creates them. Even if you only start small with a handful of people, eventually it can grow into something huge and give you the experience you need to go pro.
