“Hard-working, optimistic and tenacious, Ana is an example of how women can thrive in the gaming industry if they really want to,” she is profiled in the interview.
Ana says that in the beginning she was not good at CS:GO at all, but through seriousness and perseverance she managed to become international champion at the “Girl Gamer Festival” Dubai in 2020 and to win some of the biggest CounterStrike tournaments in the world in 2022: the ones held in Dallas and Valencia. In the meantime, Ana managed to be known not only in Romania, but all over the world.
“I was fascinated by video games since I was little. My professional gaming career started in 2014-2015 when I participated in various championships in our country. After my successes, I had the opportunity to play outside Romania, participate in international championships and pursue a professional gaming career. Finally, in 2020, I managed to win the international championship of the “Girl Gamer Festival” in Dubai. Everything culminated in winning the tournaments that took place this year in Dallas and Valencia – practically the most important Counter Strike tournaments in the world”, says the young Romanian girl.
