As both a tournament player and Twitch streamer, Miles works hard every day on her journey to the top.
KawaiiFaceMiles’ foray into the FGC began at EVO 2015. “After my first Evolution, I realized that I absolutely loved competing. Later on, I attended Kumite In Tennessee 2016 and started to go to different events so I could test my skills.” Since then, Miles has continued to grow and develop her Tekken prowess in tournaments across the nation. Never missing a chance to test herself, KawaiiFaceMiles stays motivated by playing against other competitive Tekken players whenever possible. “During every tournament, I try to stay aware of what I can study and practice against later because that inspires me to always be growing as a player. I see the level of progression that other players have and I want to match that because as a competitor, I want to push myself to be the best I can be.” With her positive mentality, she is always ready for the next battle.
