    Hey Insiders,

    In this month’s edition of What’s In Your Bag?, we’re featuring Team Razer’s summer intern and college undergrad, Kerry “Dust” Wu, who just spent 3 awesome months at our Singapore HQ learning about esports management. Find out what he has in his backpack and his thoughts on working with us at Razer—his first foray into the gaming industry.

    Tell us more about yourself, what do you do for a living? What do you do for fun? A fun fact?
    Hey guys, what’s up? My name is Kerry and I’m from Seattle, WA. I’m a student at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor where I study Data Science in the Engineering College.

    For fun, I like to play video games (duh) but I also really enjoy playing football with friends. Nothing is better than getting 10 of your buddies together and enjoy some 5v5 touch football in a random parking lot or field. We also play the other football (soccer). I mean, I’m trash, but anything is fun with friends.

    A fun fact…If I say I interned at Razer that would be cheating, wouldn’t it? I have been snowboarding for the last 13 years. Though I’m not particularly good at it and I can’t land a freaking jump for the life of me, I really do enjoy it.

    What’s in your bag?
    Mostly school stuff (boring I know): my notebook, pens and pencils, a calculator. I also pack up my Surface and its charger and external battery. During early Fall/Spring I tend to bring my penny board with me, just because I’m too lazy to walk from class to class. What else? My keys, my Bose Headset (I love these things especially when I don’t want to talk to people) and a pack of gum.

    Not much overall, I like to travel light—everything (not so) neatly packed in the Razer Rogue I scored during my internship.

    What’s a typical day like for you? (At school and out of school)
    A typical day for me…During school, it involves going to lectures (obviously), with sometimes a quick trip to the gym between classes. After that, I’ll chill with friends, whether that’s in somebody’s room or playing Xbox/Overwatch together online. Then a combination of procrastination, homework and games until about 2-3am where I just lay in bed and watch YouTube videos till I pass out. Not that wild xD

    On weekends, I’m pretty laid back so just chilling with friends. I may hit the gym if it’s not too busy. Other than that, I watch a lot of American football (Go Hawks!), movies and TV shows.

    What’s an item you carry you cannot live without?
    This is easy; My phone! I mean, us “Millennials”, (or is it Gen Z?) would be lost without our mobiles—when my phone’s out of battery, I don’t know what to do with my hands, it’s a real struggle.

    How was your experience interning with Razer?
    It was a really interesting experience. Having only worked in the U.S. and for American companies before Razer, it was unique seeing how things go on the other side of the world. Being American, I guess we have this arrogance about ourselves, where we think we’re always the best in business, so it was eye-opening to see it from a different perspective.

    Is there anything you would like to say to fans looking to intern or gain experience at Razer?
    If you’re not at least Master in Overwatch, don’t bother. Just kidding, ya boi’s low gold #hype.

    For real though, my advice would be to follow your passion: “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”. We don’t just spend all day playing video games (ok I might have, but that’s not normal). You must be passionate about gaming, Razer and its community. It’s a constant race to be the first and the best. It was amazing to feel the energy and passion the teams put in Razer products. Team Razer loves doing what they do, and that’s why they’re the best – that’s advice applicable everywhere and for everyone.

    TL;DR – Do what you love!

    As a college student, Kerry packs up his gear in the Razer Rogue Backpack. To celebrate back to school, we’re offering you a chance to score your own – enter now:

    What a great ... article? What do we call these? I found this super interesting, and a great insight from somebody who got to experience NOT working for Razer for a little bit. I totally found his feature a bit more relatable and interesting than any of the other WIYBs I've seen (for the simple fact that I have not ever worked in the gaming industry in any capacity)(not meaning anything negative toward yours @kajira - I found myself feeling like I already knew a lot of what was in yours just through what interaction we've had on Insider). If anybody knows this guy, can you pass along that I really enjoyed reading his WIYB?

    Does he really fit that skateboard in there, though? ;)

    Good luck with the drawing, everybody!

    "Log in/Sign up for Razer Insider"
    Except when I click it, it just brings me to the forums and doesn't give me credit.
    Yes, I tried logging out, then clicking the link and logging in there. Still no credit.
