Angelique Ramos is MSSA’s new Esports Representative
Angelique Ramos to run the Esports Board of Control
On 5 April 2018 it was reported that Team Valkyrie’s captain Angelique “Scarlet” Ramos was appointed by MSSA’s Management Committee to serve on MSSA’s Esports Board of Control. However, impressed by Angelique’s work ethic, dedication to the sport, ability to motivate others, MSSA’s Management Committee has now taken the bold step of co-opting Angelique to the position of Esports Representative.
The Esports Representative chairs the Esports Board of Control and represents such Board of Control on MSSA’s Management Committee.
There is a great deal of work and responsibility associated with the position, but the entire MSSA Management Board is right behind the youngest ever such appointee. Angelique is also the first female to hold this position in the history of MSSA. Her predecessors are none other than luminaries such as: Rob Stevens (2005), Johann von Backström (2006 - 2008), Dr Ryan van den Bergh (2009 - 2011), David Webster (2011 - 2012), Ryan Boyes (2014 – 2018).
But who is Angelique?
For the few who do not know, Angelique has been in the League of Legends scene for some time now, competing in Championships for at least 2 years and has not only earned her Provincial Colours but also earned her Protea Colours as part of the squad that took on Tunisia in 2017.
There is no doubt that Angelique is a shining star in the League of Legends community and has shown great determination to become one of the best female sportswomen to come out of South Africa. Angelique’s knowledge of esports and her competitive nature has secured herself as a major force in South African esports.
Angelique’s “never-give-up” attitude makes her the perfect member of MSSA’s Management Board as she deals with various issues relating to the good governance of esports in South Africa
