How would your friends describe you?
Loud, a little wacky, up for anything, loves to help people.
Favourite place you’ve travelled?
That’s so hard! I’d say it’s a tie between the Greek island Crete or Wales in the UK. I was in Crete for 2 weeks and it was one of the most incredible vacations I’ve ever had, and I lived in Wales for 3 years while doing my Master’s degree.
Next on your travel list?
Italy, Germany, and Portugal
Go-to music to listen/party to?
My favourite band of all time is a German band called Tokio Hotel.
Who did you game with growing up?
I gamed with my younger brother, and all the other kids that went to the same after school babysitter as me. She had an N64 and we would play Mario Kart and Mario Party. My best friend in the whole world is also a gamer and that was one way we’d spend our weekends.
What did your parents think of your gaming?
They definitely have a stigmatized view of it and wish I would put more time into my other hobbies. I literally can’t even mention gaming around them if I want to avoid an argument or infuriating conversation about it.
Most memorable gaming memory?
Probably the day I beat Starfox Adventures on my Nintendo Gamecube. It was the first game console my brother and I ever owned, and usually when we played games I would always call in my brother to help me with tricky parts and hard boss fights. But Starfox was the first game I beat by myself. I try not to but even now I frequently ask for help when I get stuck in games. More recently I just built my first ever gaming PC a few weeks ago and while I still love my consoles, it has changed the way I game and the way I view eSports. So that’s very recent but I’d say very memorable as well.
Advice to your 15-year-old self?
DON’T LEAVE GAMES YOU LIKE WITH YOUR BROTHER WHEN YOU GO OFF TO COLLEGE! HE WILL SELL OR LOSE THEM AND YOU WILL NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN!
I also have my own health and wellness business, because I think it is super important to keep on top of your health if you’re a gamer/streamer/eSports athlete that includes a lifestyle where you are sat down for extended periods of time. I also have multiple chronic illnesses so learning about health/fitness and products to help gamers along with anyone else manage that was always a passion of mine. The website is laurakrause.arbonne.com, it operates in multiple countries, and I’m always happy to set up Discord calls or online chats with people who want to learn more about our products and what I do.
