Here is what nic01e had to say when we had our interview.
What made you decide to join Habbox?
I returned to Habbo in 2018 after a long hiatus; Habbox and another fansite which shall not be named but is no longer active (lol) were the only fansites around on Habbo UK back in the day. I was drawn to Habbox for nostalgic reasons.
I didn’t apply for Habbox, I had competed in HxSS and told a member of staff that I was thinking of applying for events and then one of GM’s asked me for my usernames which I assumed was something HxSS. It wasn’t, it was for my website permissions for the events department lol.
I find it hilarious now, but after the initial nerves of hosting an event, I really enjoyed it and I’m thankful every day.
I like the morals of our community. I like how we don’t charge anyone to play in any of our events and that we also don’t discriminate against winners with prizes, by forcing players to sign up for an account for a bigger prize.
You should sign up because we are awesome. We also have a lot of lovely members of staff who make working at Habbox really enjoyable.
What are your current role (s) at Habbox, and what is one of your memorable moments from working in one of those roles (or previous roles)?
I am currently the Events Manager and Competitions staff.
Oh god, there is loads of memorable moments. Like when Ruth said ‘thing’ on the radio and I thought she said ‘scene’.
When I won the ‘Most likely to go to jail’ award in 2018, still makes me laugh.
What do you enjoy doing in your free time?
I don’t normally have loads of free time, but when I do; I enjoy working out. I live on the beach so I take my dog down there for walks often (even though it’s illegal during the summer months, but if they allow tourists on the beach and they act like animals, then I’m taking my dog on there as well)
How do you handle criticism?
Quite well, if it’s from someone I care about, then I can handle it and I’ll take it on board. If it’s from someone I don’t care for, then it’s amusing for me more than anything and I completely ignore it lol.
What movie can you watch over and over again?
Mean girls, it’s so fetch.
If you had one day left to live on the Earth, what would you do?
I’d do something to make me feel alive; skydiving I think would be my first choice.
What’s your current favorite song and why?
Oh this is a tough one, Mountains – Biffy Clyro.
The song is a little subjective, so it’s open to your own interpretation and I find it very empowering, personally. I’ve also seen Biffy Clyro live and they were amazing. During lockdown, I’ve found empowering songs have been helpful for coping.
Where do you see yourself in the next five years?
I plan on re-mortgaging next year and moving from my flat into a house with a garden. So, hopefully in a house with a garden and with another dog. I hope I’d have the opportunity to travel to a few more countries in the next few years as well.
What motivates you to work hard?
Anything creative, I enjoy and love to put my time into because the rewards are worth it.
Career wise, money lol.
What is your proudest accomplishment?
My younger sibling. I’ve had custody of him for a long time due to circumstances beyond our control, and he’s so smart and funny; I’m proud to have him with what he’s achieved with my support.
Thank you for reading! Who will be next…
