KIMBERLEY - I've been a gamer since I was 4 years old when my big brother taught (or forced) me how to play Gran Turismo with him! Ever since then I fell in love with the world of gaming. My favourite games that I have been playing recently are: Minecraft, Among Us, Animal Crossing, Secret Neighbour and Skyrim Elder Scrolls Online! I particularly love world building games because who knew mining or fishing for 5 hours could actually be so fun :D (only virtually though, of course...). 

I am now a 21 year old university student and if anything my love for gaming is greater now than ever!
