Her journey started with Counter Strike 1.5 and continued with CS:1.6, CS: GO, and VALORANT, respectively for 20 years of her life.

She played for many different teams all around Europe in all the games above and won different titles, including DreamHack Showdowns, Intel Challenge Katowice for three years in a row, VCT GC 2022 - EMEA - Series 2, and many more starting from 2007 until today. As she announced, Zainab "zAAz" Turkie will continue to work in the esports ecosystem, not as a player but as a role model who will be educating young people and gamers about both Counter Strike and VALORANT, in Malmö, Sweden. Moreover, she will also scout the regional upcoming talents. Here are her words on TwitLonger.
