ULT interview with Captain Awesome
One of the most positive voices in our gaming community is Captain Awesome. I hope you find his story, perseverance and passion for gaming to be motivating and inspiring. He most recently won the 'Best Dude of the Year" award from The Center Ring esports podcast in their annual Timmys award show. I hope you watch his video and read his interview to find out why.
Q. You are a consistent voice of positivity. What inspires and motivates you to share your awesomeness with others?
In 2012, I was almost killed when I was hit by a drunk driver crossing the street. I believe that I was saved for a greater purpose. That purpose is to be a beacon of hope and positivity for everyone that I encounter. I love to see the joy in people’s eyes when I talk to people in person or reading comments and messages how I am a driving force for others.
Q. 2020 was one of the most insane years many of us will ever experience in a lifetime. How did you persevere and what did you learn?
2020 was a crazy time with more people than ever spending time online that brought more negativity. I try to post something positive every hour to give the timeline a spot of kindness and encouragement. I learned to take each day as a new day to make it the best I can, given the circumstances.
Q. Any advice for those out there in our gaming community who struggle with challenges in light of what is going on in our world?
Just take the day one step at a time, for example, just get out of bed, or eat a good breakfast. Believe it or not one little positive thing can set up your day to be awesome. Baby steps. And, most of all smile.
