On a podcast hosted on the official AcadArena Discord server, Lim said on the nomination, “I hardly have any photos anywhere. I’m a very introverted person… So I really feel grateful. ‘Di ko na tatanggahin. (Translation: I will not refuse it.) I know as the founder, as the CEO, I need to represent it loud and proud, even if it means I have to show my face to the world.”
Lim is one of two Filipino finalists at the 2021 Esports Awards with the other being 16-year old Karl “KarlTzy” Nepomuceno of Bren Esports’ Mobile Legends: Bang Bang roster.
