XGN or Xiled Gaming Network is an amazing community built on a firm foundation of like minded gamers who have one purpose: to game. Within this community there are groups called divisions likewise within these divisions there are squads. Many great leaders are brought up from those squads and become a role model for many who follow behind. One such role model we have found came from Nexus a squad in triple helix, her name is XGN Angel 7. When we heard that such an amazing young woman became a founder we just had to sit down with her to see what the key to her success was. We were very excited to hear what she had to say on the subject so when we asked her how long it took to get to founder she had this to say. “It took me quite some time, I believe it was about a year and two months. I knew that once I had joined XGN I was all in.”
In her interview Miss Angel told us, “I’m a very competitive person so I wanted nothing more than to see how high in the ranks I could go with a good reputation. I wanted others to know me well and see that if I can do it so can they.” She had a very good idea of what she wanted and went for it. As she climbed the ranks she found that she enjoyed what she did wholeheartedly. With the many achievable ranks within our community we were very eager like many to find out what her favorite rank was, so we had to find out. “In my opinion being the General of a squad was my favorite rank. The reason being is that I was able to run it the way I saw fit, while still being a good example of a great leader. In doing so I became like a mom to many of the members in Cobalt. As it turned out even though i was originally from Nexus, i transferred to give another squad a fighting chance. This brought us together allowing the squad to prosper.”
Excitedly XGN Angel 7 reminisced about how she felt as she had hints dropped that she would in fact be the next founder. She laughed, “I knew the promotion was coming not only because hints were being dropped but also it was due to the fact that I did the best that I could as a co-founder. My div leader XGN Dub 7 and co-div leader XGN Mag 7 I believe were just waiting for the right time to give me the promotion. While I waited for my time to shine, no matter what I did, I did it the best of my ability. I wanted nothing more than to be the best that I could be not only for myself but for my division as well.”
Meanwhile as excited as we were we just had to get more details on this outstanding role model. To do so we asked her another question we just had to find out. We asked miss Angel what her goals for Triple Helix was and she did not disappoint. “It was said long before my time that our division was the best. Even though it is still the best division we have seen many difficulties along the road. No matter what though we as a division have always pulled through and came out on top. I see us continuing to live up to that. It’s not just because I say it though. I have big plans for Triple Helix as a whole and I intend to see them through.” To our delight there were more surprises in store for us as XGN Angel 7 gave us a little more insight on what it means to be a founder and what it felt like to have so many look up to her. “It was a bit scary because you go from having just over eighty members that look up to you to five hundred. It was a big difference from General to co-founder then Founder. Seeing this it only inspires me to be the best leader not only for myself but for everyone involved. I want to be the best for those who look up to me, so they can see what a leader should be; a great example.”
Finally, after all was said and done we asked if there was any advice she wanted to give or any thoughts she had to tell those who looked up to her. My jaw dropped at the advice she had to give. “I have come a long way from where I was, though it wasn’t an easy road I never gave up. My best advice is to no matter what happens keep fighting and you will get where you want to be. I was really proud of my accomplishments here within XGN and Triple Helix. Being a Founder currently, I see everything that I have done has made it worth it. This promotion was a reassurance that I was doing something right, that everything I did didn’t go unnoticed. The moral of the story is that all your hard work, everything you do is appreciated no matter what rank you are. Honestly, I can say that through everything I wouldn’t be where I am today without the rest of my division and I am proud to be part of something greater than just myself. I hope that one day others will see this as well and do the very same.” On behalf of the News team and all of XGN Congratulations XGN Angel 7 on becoming Triple Helix’s newest founder.
