Meet Abdullah

16-year-old Abdullah has been coming to Richard House for as long as he remembers. Abdullah shares why he is passionate about gaming.

“Gaming helped me a lot. Talking at school is difficult. When people look at you, they judge you at that moment and it’s very hard to make friends. However, when I go online the players on the other end don’t know anything about my personal life. It is very easy to express myself.”
