Brian Schweigler, 14, At Work

In late 2011,, the video game news Blog and Forum was founded by Brian Schweigler, a 14 year old student of San Pedro High School.

The goal of this site is to become a successful and well known video gaming community on the internet. N00bPwners strives to have a wide array of articles covering video game news and everything having to do with them.

To achieve this goal, he created a site with a unique design and recruited 10 international volunteers and writers to help with the website.

N00bPwners was created for programers from around the world to have a place to call their own.

The site covers the following video game platforms: Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3 and Vita, Apple iPad, PC, Android tablets, the Nintendo 3DS, Wii and Wii U.

Through having all of this, they provide a place for video gamers to discuss, get informed and meet other people interested in video games. N00bPwners specializes on video game music and how young talented people can start a career in the video gaming industry.

When the team at N00bPwners first started, they did not have it easy. The team was still small and a lot of hard work was needed to get the site to where it is today. The result they got from all this hard work is something that they are proud of.

"It feels like we have accomplished something great," 14 year old Brian said when asked about his thoughts on the site. From the way he explained, it sounds as if they were a bit skeptical at the start of N00bPwners. Their fears seemed to be illogical as they saw the site's successful launch on the 29th February, 2012.

As of today, the team of writers for N00bPwners consists of ten international professionals. These writers focus on news in the world of video games, but also on creating their own content. Their content includes: reviews, analysis, "Guide to Pwning", news, Top 10, informative articles and speculation.

Today, just two month after the launch, the site went from 250 entries to over 2,900 entries and articles from the world of video games. On top of this, N00b Pwners also has hundreds of video game music sheets from over 100 games for Piano, Violin, Flute, and Guitar.

As the only video game forum for Central America, one major focus of N00b Pwners is education and careers in the video game industry. The booming industry offers a wide array of job possibilities around the world. No matter if in Belize or Australia, jobs can be found anywhere, if the applicant has the right education.

For this reason, N00b Pwners provides also back ground information on where to get educated in video game programming, designing, etc.

14 year Brain, has proven that with dedication and hard work you can accomplish anything you set your mind to. He is also encouraging teens and parents of teens to take a look at his site and open doors for themselves. The only way to find out if you have what it takes to run a site like Brian's would be to get out there and try it.

Let's hope this story will inspire some other kids to study hard and have goals in life.

It's nice to see when dreams come true and we should not forget, the children are our future.
