How long have you been playing games online?
Hmm, I got my computer for Christmas 2000, so about 4 years.
How much time do you spend online a week?
Not as much as I want :(
How did you learn about Eliters and when did you join?
Well I joined Laddermonkey at first (Darkest days of my life jeje) I remember that on that day it was the 7th or so day that the site was down and I was in a paper tourney that are so boring, I remember Francoranch came into the lobby and said that there was another league playing in another room, I left right behind him and never looked back lol.
When did you first become a Staff Member at Eliters?
I became TD on March 23, 2001.
Tell us about your career history at Eliters.
I was GL within 2 months, and in September I was appointed HA for literati, I was HA for 2 years and now Iím working in the Spanish Team for Literati and Dominoes.
What is it in your background that prepared you for all this?
Hmm I have no idea. I think I was 17 at the time I first became td, but I have always been a very mature person, and having a child at a very young age, made a huge change in my life for the better and made me a better person.
What skills have you developed that made this possible?
When I first joined Eliters I was a dumb little girl with no skills lol. I don't even think I knew how to use a computer lol, Eliters has seen me grow up as a person. I got my skills from Eliters. I have achieved organizational skills by hosting and by administrating a league, I learned how to use a computer, thanks to a lot of Eliters lol, I was typing like 30 wpm now i'm typing 70 wpm. I even think I have improved my spelling lol. The list is endless lol. Eliters certainly saved me a couple dollars by not having to go to a computer class lol. Eliters helped me prepare for the wonderful job I have now, and I can't thank them enough :).
And what do you do, for Elite that makes use of all these skills?
Right now I'm working in kicking off the Spanish Team, and I plan to use all the skills I have acquired in Eliters. I have more experience because of the Literati league and I hope that the Spanish Team will be a great success for Eliters.
What leagues have you administered or been a TD in Elite?
I have been a TD in Dominoes, Euchre and Literati.
What do you do in your time away from Elite?
I volunteer in my son's little league team. I work in a job I love so much, I like to read, cross-stitch, and crochet, and well of course ELITERS.
Tell us a little about your family, and if I remember correctly, you are expecting another soon as well?
I have a 6 year old boy, I have been married for 7 years, and well I'm expecting my second child in Jan, 10, 2005. I'm going for my ultrasound next week, so I'm very excited lol.
Tell us about an exciting event in your life.
The craziest thing I have ever done in my life is having a family at a young age. I was 13 when I became pregnant, and the scary thing was, How to tell my mom???? jejejeje. I was very rebellious when I was young, I ditched school, and well did the most rebellious thing of all which was to become pregnant, but everything turned out for the best, my life is great, I have a great hubby, although things with my mom never returned to normal, everything turned out great for me.
My life changed in seconds, I was a 13 girl so rebellious and my whole attitude change within seconds, I became more matured, and responsible. Hubby was 17 we practically grew up together.
What would you tell a prospective member who is trying to choose between Eliters and other, similar leagues?
Once you have tried Eliters, you won't even think about choosing lol.
Well, that certainly sums it up, any last words for our readers?
Eliters is the best, I have tried other leagues, nothing comes close to Eliters. I love the people here they are like my second family. I love coming home from work and just sitting back and joining a tourney and relaxing, forgetting all my troubles... and that is great for me. I'm pretty sure a lot of us feel that way.
