Twitch is all about games and creativity. What type of content do you stream on your channel?
The types of things you would see on my channel would be shooters like Call Of Duty or Apex, horror games like Dead By Daylight or Outlast, action or RPG’s like Devil May Cry 5 or Final Fantasy 7 Remake, and my home is fighters so Tekken, Soul Caliber, its a mixed random bag around my parts.
What made you start this journey in streaming and when did you start?
I’ve been streaming on Twitch for 4 years I started as a viewer watching my best friend Darkzero_Omega and learning a lot from him about streaming I’ve always done some form of entertainment singing modeling so I thought well he makes it look fun and enjoyable I should try and well here we are 4 years later still entertaining and educating others about streaming.
What are some of the issues and challenges that you’ve faced on Twitch and how did you overcome them?
The first issue was of course parenting while streaming I didn’t know how to juggle or if I should even have my daughter around because I know the internet isn’t always friendly or safe but as she’s gotten older she kind of knows that I stream and my community knows who she is so there have been times she has appeared on the stream with me but she also knows when the music is playing loud mommy is about to go live.
The second issue was breaking away from the image that people saw of me and having them respect me for the person I am some folks had seen my modeling or cosplay photos and when they saw I streamed they assumed I was going to be a ” titty streamer” getting away from that stigma and having people respect u for what u do is still a challenge but I can definitely say the more I have been speaking on podcast appearing on others streams the communities that have accepted me, have helped give me a voice so that has helped a lot.
The final issue would be I do have a mental illness that sometimes affects me and it made me scared to speak about things because of stigma but I just started talking and trying to uplift others and getting the word that we aren’t alone started to help
What are some of the resources and support that you use, that’s out there for creating a broadcast on Twitch?
I do stream from my pc so I have my obs studios set up, threw my AVerMedia, Stream Elements, and Labs for my stats and alerts, I use Kapawing and HitFilm for my editing and photoshop and Paintshop for my graphics.
You’ve only been given 3 games to play for the rest of your life, what are you playing and why?
Legend of Zelda Ocarina because it has a place in my heart when I miss my mother, Final Fantasy X because I never finished the sphere grid fully so I would have so much time to do that, and Call of Duty Modern Warfare. I need to keep my aim up u never know what can happen in life.
