An 8th grader and depressed child who finds solace in video games; This is the story of Soren Bjerg aka Bjergsen, an online gamer from Denmark who turned his “escape plan” into a lifelong career. He entered his first League of Legends tournament at the age of 16 and helped his team qualify for the LCS Championship.
Bjergsen Bio (Age)
Bjergsen is the pseudonym of Soren Bjerg as he is known in the world of online games. He was born in 1996, precisely on February 22. He was born in Holstebro, Denmark and raised by his parents alongside two brothers. In all the interviews he had, he never revealed the identity of his family members.
He grew up in an auspicious home, but life was hard at school. The names of the schools Bjergsen attended are not known, but it is known that he was one of those skinny children who was often bullied by tall students and unfortunately, as in the case of Bjergsen, teachers too. He was transferred to another school, but the trend did not stop, but the situation escalated, as he was also physically attacked.
As expected, the bullying took its toll on Bjergsen as he was often depressed. He managed to enter the 8th grade, but when he could no longer bear the abuse, he refused to continue his studies. His parents tried to convince him to return, but he made up his mind. It was at this difficult time in his life that he found video games.
He started playing games as a way to find peace and escape depression. It is not certain at what age exactly Bjergsen started acting; he was good at this game from an early age and soon started playing for a small salary. Mainly, he was just grateful to be able to play and run away from his worries.
When some online gaming teams saw the young boy’s talent, they recruited him. He was first drafted by Western Wolves in April 2012 after playing LOL (League of Legends) for a while and taking part in online tournaments.
A few months later, Bjergsen joined another team called Team LCID. It is a team made up of online players headquartered in France. In August of the same year (2012), he moved to the Copenhagen Wolves where he discovered himself, so to speak. By finding himself, Bjergsen was able to break out of the shell of the shy, skinny, intimidated boy who avoided the public seeing a bold man ready to face the world.
It all started with the encouragement of Deficio, the team’s manager at the time. He convinced Bjergsen who feared an upcoming game event to participate with his team. Coupled with the fact that the team members were also very nice people, he overcame his fears and is now better at it.
With his different teams, he participated in several championships and tournaments such as the NorthCon eSport, the Eclypsia Chrismas Cup, the European LCS before moving to North America. He moved to the United States in 2013 and joined the SoloMid team as a middle layer. To join TSM, he ditched his old team midway for which he faced a $2,000 fine from Riot Games in 2014.
Bjergsen was an impressive player at TSM and helped the group reach greater heights and win championships. On a personal note, Soren has done well as he won the Most Valuable Player award in 2015.
Parents – Mom
The online player was born into a Danish family consisting of his parents and siblings. Bjergsen’s family valued education and wanted him to be well-educated; However, they overlooked their son’s depression and oppression at school.
Reports say he has two brothers, although their names are unknown. It is not certain if he has sisters or not. The available information would indicate that his parents still live in Denmark, while he currently resides in the United States – in the TSM house.
His parents’ occupation is not known, as is the current status of his siblings. He is certainly not from a famous family.
Who is Bjergsen’s girlfriend, is he in love with Pokimane?
Bjergsen had a rough start in life but is currently enjoying good fortune. Most people in his age group are in a relationship and he is no exception. At the moment. Bjergsen is in a relationship with Imane Amy, a player of Moroccan Canadian origin known under the pseudonym of Pokimane. She is also a YouTuber and Twitch streamer, known for her gaming tutorials on Twitch and YouTube. It is unknown when the duo met or when they first started dating, however, the pair enjoy a happy relationship.
Soren Bjerg aka Bjergsen has overcome a lot of challenges and managed to carve his place in the online gambling world. He became a young man of great talents who gained fame and wealth. An estimate made in 2018 revealed the player to be worth a whopping $1.5 million. Much of this wealth comes from his big paychecks, with the rest acquired live from his YouTube channel and other projects. At its current rate, there is no doubt that its net worth will grow significantly over the next two years.
