I was at home playing Xbox doing what I normally do. Having fun playing with my friends. We were playing Call of Duty. We were just doing what we occasionally do which is play in a competitive tournament for some money. All of a sudden my friend said something that reminded me of my hero: Optic Nadeshot.
It was the summer of 2013. I was browsing videos on YouTube looking for something interesting to watch since I was bored and needed something new to do. That was when I came across Optic Nadeshot. It was a Black Ops 2 video that was titled “Optic Gaming’s Road to 100-0 with Optic Nadeshot!” His videos were interesting so I kept watching them.
Then, I came across his video “You Changed My Life(Nadeshot’s short story)” It was a video about how he started out with a job at McDonald’s and tells the story about how he became a professional gamer and how hard it was. I found it to be a very motivational video.
It had motivated me because he says that “It was hard but can be done, stick to it and you can achieve your goal!” Ever since that video I had started to get on Xbox and begin to practice every day. When I first started out competitively I wasn’t too good. But I kept at it and still practiced and I had gotten a lot better. This was all thanks to my hero Optic Nadeshot.
I then replied back to my friend my friend and said “Optic Nadeshot is a beast!” We finished our match and won. We continued to play the tournament and did fairly well. We then went on to win it all and I felt as if I was Optic Nadeshot!
