Summer is going full speed ahead and the beginning of the new month is here. With that, we’d like to introduce the August Ambassador of the Month and newest Community Champion – NiteTimeOwl3533! He’s a source of positive energy in the program, he’s welcoming, and he’s always down to play a game with community members. Read on to find out more about the man behind the Gamertag!
How did gaming become one of your passions?
Video games allowed me to think, have fun, and learn something new as well as challenge myself especially with those competitive achievements. I like to think that video games have helped me grow as a person, and will continue to be a huge part of my life always. I am excited to see what is in store on game pass in the future.
Has the Xbox Ambassadors community made an impact on your life? If so, how?
Absolutely! I have met so many new people that are not only involved in video games, but the ambassador community, and things like that, you learn a lot about so many opportunities to learn from each other. Every single day I learn something and that makes me smile.
How do you stay involved in the program and the community?
I admit I am the Xbox Ambassadors discord a lot! Haha. There’s always something new in the program, whether asking questions or chatting about a game, everything in the program has such a meaningful purpose. One of the most important parts has been gaming for charity with ExtraLife where you play video games and help hospitals it’s something special.
What brought you to the Xbox Ambassadors program and what makes you stay?
I was lucky enough to find the ambassadors program advertisement on my Xbox dashboard and quickly learned all about the program and was excited to join, but I wish I knew about the Ambassador program sooner! What makes me want to stay in the program is that the people are supportive, I can play games with the friends that I have made, and just hang out and show love for Xbox.
How do you think online communities positively impact the lives of gamers?
I definitely think that communities positively impact the lives of gamers because we can all have that one to lean on when things get rough, whether it’s advice, a kind word, etc, that’s so important to have in a community. Also, if a game is meaningful, we can talk about that game and share what it meant to us either in the forums, discord, or any social platform. Video games allow us to express ourselves in so many ways.
What do you like to do outside of gaming?
I am a bit of a sports person, my favorite sport being ice hockey. I like to travel by car to places that I haven’t seen yet usually I don’t like being in the car for too long. I like going out and discovering small restaurants that are out of the way.
Is there anything else you’d like to talk about?
Yes, check on your family and loved ones often especially now and make sure they are ok. Also, take some time out for yourself every day. Also drink a lot of water.
