Rumay Wang, who goes by Hafu, owes her start in gaming to a bad case of mono — at least somewhat. She spent her recovery at home resting, which gave her ample opportunity to hone her skills. In the end, Hafu uncovered her undeniable natural talent for competitive gaming.
These days, Hafu is a professional in the multiplayer role-playing eSports sphere — and one of the best. “I remember showing my mom this website, and it had their world rankings, and it showed me as number one of like 11 or 12 million people,” Hafu remembers. She’s also become a role model for other women in what is still a largely male-dominated space.
This is Hafu’s story as told by her and the friends who support her journey. We asked her how she feels about being a Bud Light All-Star:
