Interview: Female pro gamer Stephanie Fouche on unique challenges, and what it takes to be the best

El33tonline writes:

"Making a name for yourself in the world of competitive gaming is a severe challenge at the best of times and it takes a special kind of person to climb the ranks of this cut-throat environment to gain even the slightest recognition.

But what if you’re a woman? What kind of additional tests of character will you encounter in a sport traditionally dominated by male participants?

El33tonline was fortunate enough to speak to South African pro gamers Stephanie Fouche (aka Steph1401 online) who find out how she got her start in competitive gaming, the challenges she has had to overcome, her stringent training regimen, and how she became sponsored by peripheral manufacturer Gioteck." (Battlefield 3, Battlefield 4, Gioteck, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)
