About the Contributor
Roxana Vasquez
I have lost many video games, but when I win them, it feels like an accomplishment. As a newcomer journalist, I want to explore different views, opinions, and entertainment through my writing. Exploring new worlds and adventures through gaming helps me escape the real world. I hope that my writing will be an escape for people from their everyday lives. Everyday life can be boring without some fun and that is what I aim to provide.
