I was born in Tashkent, Uzbekistan on January 12th, 2002. I started playing Dota 1 (Warcraft III: Frozen Throne) when I was like 6 years old.
Every day I used to go to an internet café to play Dota. I had a computer at home as well but I never had the internet so that was problematic. Additionally, the computer was not even good so I would just go to an internet café. I used to even steal money from my parents to go and play but after a while I got caught and learnt the lesson. So basically I never knew what was going to happen with me in life because I just hated school. When I turned 16, me and my mom won the lottery (“Green Card”) which allowed us to move to the U.S. From that moment I set a goal to improve in Dota. At first, I was like 1.5k MMR which is really bad. I worked a lot on myself watching other players. I started gaining MMR step by step and in literally 2-3 months got to 4k MMR. After that I never stopped improving and working on myself so now I reached 7.7k MMR. I am really proud of myself because my parents and even my friends never supported me in Dota 2. There are still a lot of things I need to work on and I hope to become a better player in future.
