How Myrtle Sarrosa Transitioned To Creating Gaming Content

Myrtle Sarrosa shares her international achievements because of gaming!

TV personality and Sparkle artist Myrtle Sarrosa has able to spread her wings from being a cosplayer and a celebrity. She has also successfully transitioned into doing gaming content.

The transition wasn’t hard, she says, because gaming is something she has been doing ever since.

She says, “Gaming has always just been a hobby for me that I did to have fun. Growing up, I’ve always enjoyed playing games like Pokemon, Harvestmoon and Ragnarok Online.”

However, the pandemic intensified her passion for gaming as it wasn’t only a hobby for her but a way to make new friends and meet new people. “It unexpectedly became my way to connect with others and make new friends. Through cosplay, I am able to bring to life my favorite characters and many of my communities’ favorite characters. And through streaming, I am able to have the opportunity to share my gaming experiences to others and have fun with them,” says Myrtle Sarrosa.

Gaming achievements

In 2022, Myrtle Sarrosa had an achievement for winning her first TikTok award for gaming.

She says about this, “I’m just grateful that the universe has guided me into a career in gaming and to be able to connect with people through games. It is something that I really love doing and so I feel nothing but gratitude to all those people who have inspired me, most especially during the pandemic, and to everyone who has helped me in my journey as a content creator.

The Kapuso actress is nothing but grateful to be able to create content for her favorite games. “Every day, I am just grateful that I have the amazing opportunity to create content for my favorite games such as Call of Duty, MIR 4 and MIR M, Ragnarok and League of Legends.”

Game Developers Conference

Aside from her TikTok award, Myrtle Sarrosa has been active in playing blockchain-based games like MIR 4 and MIR M. Now, she has also founded the first Fan Token in the WeMix Play Platform: The Myrtle Token.

According to the former Pinoy Big Brother winner, it was a way of strengthening relationships between creators and fans.

Myrtle Sarrosa explains, “One of the games that recognized me was the phenomenal blockchain game MIR 4, which was developed by WeMade, and it got me the opportunity to be a part of their special series. After working with WeMade Entertainment on several projects, we started collaborating to look for better ways to strengthen the relationship between creators and fans through innovations in blockchain technology. And since the Fan Token was designed to do just that, I decided to co-found it with them. So far, it has been a very successful venture with thousands of token holders since our launch roughly two months ago.”

Just this March 23, Myrtle Sarrosa got invited as a guest speaker at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

She would talk about “how Fan Tokens can connect gamers, creators and game developers to build a strong community with a joint blockchain economy.”

Myrtle Sarrosa expounds, “I’ll be talking mostly about my story and experiences going into the launch of the Fan Token, including the major challenges we’ve faced along the way and how we overcame them. I will also share some details about our plans and future projects. It’s going to be exciting.”

But admittedly, talking about gaming in a community of gamers can be “definitely nerve-wracking.” She explains, “As a gamer growing up, it also feels surreal to be able to attend such an amazing event surrounded by all of my favorite game developers. I’m just super excited to meet all of them because they truly are my heroes in gaming. And I’ll be forever grateful that I have been given this opportunity to be there as a guest speaker.”

More success for Myrtle Sarrosa: The Gamer

The San Francisco event is not the first time that Myrtle Sarrosa will travel because of gaming.

She recalls, “Last year, I got the chance to travel to London for the first time to play Warzone Mobile. It was such an exciting trip because we had the chance to be the first ones to play the game.”

But the best part was working with game developer Activision Blizzard “who listened to our recommendations on how to improve the game,” she says. The Sparkle talent adds, “Learning more about what is happening behind the scenes and working closely with the game developers was truly an eye-opening experience.”

Another chance she had was writing two songs for Call of Duty.

She expounds, “Being featured all over Asia was an exciting experience but I think the most exciting part of it was when I had the chance to really embrace my creativity and work hands on for both the music and the video.”

Impact on other people’s lives

But of course, the best achievement for Myrtle Sarrosa was the impact she has with other people because of her content.

She shares, “My heart feels full whenever I read messages from people telling me that I helped them go through tough times with my live streams, highlight videos and cosplay contents. I realized that gaming really connects people in so many amazing ways and it gave me a new purpose that inspired me to make the transition.”

She is also proud that women like her are being acknowledged in the gaming community—which has been dominated by men.

“I would like to show some love and to celebrate all the women out there that are working hard. I’m really happy that here in the Philippines, we are creating an environment that embraces women in gaming. And I’m grateful that we have such a supportive community that advocates for positivity. Yes, there are still times when we get looked down upon. I myself actually still experience it sometimes. Let’s continue working together to eliminate that stigma in the gaming space and be confident about ourselves. Always keep in mind that we are ‘not just’ women. We ARE women.”
