Gabriella Leung, chairperson of the Hong Kong Student E-sports Association and a University student herself, gave her thoughts about E-sports as a viable career in Hong Kong. She cautions that “It definitely wouldn’t be easy, no one will make it big overnight. Make sure you are passionate and willing to put in the effort.”
