Honeybee and cR Brenda.
In General, how did start playing video games?
"Our dad had a Nintendo and a super Nintendo growing up so me and Matt played that a lot. We also got GameBoy pockets when we were around 6 so we've been playing for a while."
How did you get into the competitive scene?
"I played Injustice online a lot and won so much that I thought I should win money off it. I Google searched "Toronto Injustice Tournaments" and found out about Toronto TopTiers. I asked Matt to go with me to the local they were having and we've never stopped competing. That was back in May/June 2013."
Who/what are, or were, your inspirations in the competitive scene?
"Just the joy of competing and making new friends with the people that I played with. It's addicting.Also supporting the scene and the love of the game."
Did you think you would get this far today?
"Back when I started, I never imagined I'd be able to make "HoneyBee" a name to be respected throughout the NRS community haha. So no. Definitely not."
What is your advice to inspire fans wanting to join the competitive scene?
"Do whatever you love doing and give it your best effort. Everyone is capable of great things with enough perseverance."
What are some fun facts about yourself that you would like to let your fans know?
"I'm from Canada and it's cold lol."
What are some of your top accomplishments?
"Basically anything I've received a medal for, with my EVO 3rd place being at the very top of the list. Winning a 4th place medal for Injustice at UFGT 2014 was really important for me because that was my first medal and it was during a 3 week period where I placed 5th at ECT, 1st at Toryuken and 4th at UFGT. It definitely helped cement my name and status as the Flash to beat."
What are some of your hobbies outside of gaming?
"I love playing pool, board games, chilling with friends, watching shows and my new years resolution is to start working out again."
Do you have any favorite sports teams?
"Netherlands is always who I root for during the World Cup/Euro Cup. I don't watch too much sports outside of that."
Any final thoughts or words?
"Thanks for taking interest in me! I hope to make an even bigger impact on the NRS scene in 2016!"
