1. There is no such thing as a "pending" ban or Steam admin. Anyone threatening your account is a scammer trying to scare you. Read more.

    Please tell us about yourself (job, school, hobbies, etc)
    I currently attend an accredited university and I am studying accounting. I work as a resident assistant at my university, so I have extensive experience with handling privacy and managing others around me to ensure the safety of my building. I also have extensive experience running gaming servers and forums, for I used to run a Minecraft and GMod server when I was in high school. I had servers in my house running on dedicated IPs and I managed everything in-house. I had to stop when I started college, but I hope to continue that again when I graduate. I enjoy gaming (of course) and I like spending time with my friends. One of my passions is analyzing and researching credit card offers and terms. I help my friends and family find good credit cards, for I practice good credit card use and I maximize my benefits (you can definitely tell I have finance in my blood). I could write a lot more but I don't want to throw too much to you at once, but feel free to contact me and ask for more information.​

    Why do you want to be a SteamRep moderator, and what makes you feel you're a good candidate?
    I want to be a SteamRep moderator because I miss helping others within the gaming community. I always advocate for the truth and full disclosure, and by becoming a moderator I could help others know the truth behind potential scammers and liars. I have reported many scam profiles and people through Steam directly and received those "thank you" messages from Steam. By doing so, I feel happy that I helped save someone from a scam. I am also an Xbox Ambassador, so I do the same thing on the Xbox platform. Helping others is something I enjoy doing in my free time, so becoming a moderator would allow me to do just that.

    I think my experience as an RA, as well as an Xbox Ambassador, would benefit me in this position. I have extensive experience in handling confidential information, as well as writing detailed and objective reports for supervisors to read and adjudicate. By becoming a SteamRep moderator, I believe I could bring my experience and help my fellow moderators and admins keep the community safe.​

    Past administrative experience:
    Yes, going back on my job as a resident assistant I am essentially a manager of a building and I work with my staff to ensure safety at all times. I am also an accounts executive during breaks for a company, so I have experience both in the private and public industry.​

    List Steam trading communities you are / have been active on and in what capacity (user, mod, admin)

    Have you ever been banned from another community? If so, what happened?

    Other questions or comments:
    I hope I will be able to help serve the SteamRep community and keep the users safe. If you need anything further from me, please don't hesitate to contact me.​
