What I am probably most thankful for in my life, are my parents. Ever since I have been a little kid my parents did their best to give me the chance to achieve anything I want, and always supported me with full dedication. I never had problems with my parents not encouraging something I did or I want to do, and that is what I am grateful for the most. Everything I achieved in my life, everything I saw and experienced, everything that ever gave me joy, I can do all that just because of the help of my parents and how many possibilities they gave me in life.
The Growth of “League of Legends”
For a few years now I am part of a community that is basically all about playing, as well as discussing and watching a video-game called “League of Legends” that experienced a huge growth of interest in the last approximately 2 years. It all started as a small Computer game. About 5 years ago it was played by not more than a few hundreds of people that were just trying to find some interesting new games, but it instantly amazed thousands in just a short period of time. After just one year of being publicly playable for people all around the world, the company that produces the game organized the first official world championship where different teams from all of the 7 continents compete each other in which one is the single best team. This tiny little competition started with about 100 life viewers in 2011 and now, in 2015 to the 5th annual championship, gathered about 90,000 people in the official south-Korean soccer stadium who were willing to pay a lot of money to me closer to their idols on the stage. But not just those thousands of people watched the game, but also millions of people watched the life broadcast in the internet and it was therefore the largest E-Sports event in this branches’ history.
The attached picture shows my teammates and me (lower right corner) in 2012 after winning the state soccer-championship for the third consecutive time. On that day we beat our biggest rivals in the finals with an overall very clean win 3 to nothing. Lucky for me I scored 2 of our goals and also assisted the third one. This picture is very important to me because after this championship-win our team as it is shown on the picture, split up into different clubs and we never had the chance to play together again.

Probably my favorite artist is "Joey Bada$$". Ever since I fell in love with Hip Hop and especially more old-school based rap, I stumbled over many different performers but after years of getting to know a lot of them I somehow found a song of him that instantly impressed me and made me listen through most of his albums in just a few days. Not just he is in my opinion an impressive and good-sounding artist, but also his whole rap "crew" creates music that I just rarely dislike.
The Ballspielverein Borussia 09 e.V. Dortmund is one of the oldest and most successful soccer clubs in the whole world. Since it was founded on the 19th December of 1909, it dominates the first German soccer league - the Bundesliga. Especially in the last few seasons (2012-2015) the gained a lot of international recognition. In Germany, the BvB (Borussia Dortmund) is notorious for their very loyal fans and also players that once that they start playing there fall in love with the club for the rest of their lives. In the last two years the club played in many huge international tournaments and won the German championship several times with a lot of distance to the second and third place. All in all you could say that the BvB is a club that is very remarkable for what they achieved in their history and for how good as well as serious the relationship between the actual team and their fans is.
