Being a competitor is a big part of my identity. Competing allows us to show our time, effort, skill, and creativity in a way that not a lot of other forms of expression can. Competing lets me display the ways I can improve upon myself, and I can compare myself to other great competitors that have earned my respect.
The FGC is a great place to meet people who share the same passions as you. It's diverse and accepting. It's critical of your flaws and proud of what you can accomplish. The FGC is like family.
FCF is undoubtedly on another level of direction and production with its events. The FGC wants to grow, and FCF is gonna be a big reason for that growth in California. I intend on supporting the community that allowed me to step into the scene, and I look forward to what they have in store for the FGC.
