The digital world has literally changed how we perceived things in society. For a long time, online games and social media platforms were deemed as factors that hinder the youth from focusing on their studies and achieving more in life. (Even at present, it still has a negative image to some people).
But now that we see the economic potentials of e-sports and content creation, many are now shifting towards the opportunities made available online. From the usual ‘I want to be a doctor, lawyer, engineer, astronaut’ answers, now we see an influx of YouTuber, influencer, vlogger, and gamer upfront responses among many digital natives when asked the notorious ‘What do you want to be when you grow up?’ question.
