Dr Pepper Tuition Contest Hello everyone, I am Michael White, also known as vVv Shadow among the community. I am 19 years old, and currently going to community college to get my basics and hopefully will transfer to UTD to finish my degree unless my plans change, and I end up moving. If that did happen I would continue my education there and get a Computer Science Degree at whatever University they may have. I have been a member of vVv since February of 2012. I was here when there was 5 people in the Call of Duty Division, I was here when the CoD Division got dropped, I was here when it got reinstated. vVv is a significant part of my life. It has changed me in many ways for the better, it has made me a better person overall. It has taught me professionalism, business skills, people skills, as well as life skills. I wish to continue my education, and get a degree in Computer Science so I can help develop games. If I win this scholarship or a part of this Scholarship it would take a huge weight off my shoulders, with how I would be ending up paying for my education. All I am asking is to please help and please vote for me and show your friends this and have them vote for me. I would really appreciate it. My rolemodel in life has always been my brother, he got kicked out of high school, and joined the military and made something with his life, he always told me to not make the same mistakes he did and to go to College and get an education. I want to make him proud. As he was in the military, he was always stationed far away so the only way I could "Hang" out with him was by playing Video Games. It all started out with a MMORPG named Star Wars Galaxies, but after a few years it more transpired into the Console scene. I first heard about MLG when it appeared on ESPN, I was amazed by it, I tried to follow the scene since then, but I fell off, I picked it back up back when Black Ops 1 was on the Circuit for the first event when Leverage won MLG Dallas 2011. Right then, I knew I wanted to get into eSports, but I had no outlet to get into it with, I had no idea about Gamebattles at the time or anything else. In early January 2012, I got an email from Kontrol Freek saying that vVv Gaming was taking applications to join again starting January 19th. I was amazed, so on January 19th, I immediately applied, and there was my outlet to get into eSports. I honestly believe I would not be where I am at today in life, or in gaming, if it was not for vVv. I have met amazing people while being apart of vVv and I thank every single one of them. The smartest person I know, Jerry "LordJerith" Prochazka, is the owner of vVv. He personally has taught me a lot and has helped me a lot through life. One big thing that I love about eSports is how Dr Pepper personally supports MLG and eSports with the @DrPepperGaming Twitter, the Dr Pepper Ultimate Gaming House, the Dr Pepper Pre Game Show at MLG Events, and not to mention the Dr Pepper Booths, with free Dr Pepper at MLG Events (Personally my favorite). I really hope I get this opportunity and win the Dr Pepper Tuition Contest. I would truthfully be thankful for it. (Photo courtesy of www.teamliquid.net) Vote for me Here!
