DTS Freshman Class: Toph
My name is Toph and I’m a queer content creator currently living in Tokyo, Japan with my dog Cookie! I’ve been gaming for as long as I can remember. The first console I ever played was an Atari 2600 but I really fell in love with gaming when my brother and I received an SNES one year. The charming world of Nintendo pulled me in and I’ve been a fanboy ever since. The thing I really love about gaming is how it bridges gaps between people. It allowed me and my brother to get along without fighting (mostly) and it allowed me to make a lot of friendships growing up and later in life. The amount of positivity added to my life thanks to video games is something for which I’m very grateful.
What game(s) do you play?
I honestly love all kinds of games! If we’re talking about my Twitch streams, you’ll most likely see me playing Animal Crossing, Pokemon or cute, comfy indie games. Occasionally jRPGs like Final Fantasy, Tales, Persona, etc. as well. However, I do enjoy my off-stream games, too! I like to wind down with games like Dead by Daylight and Overwatch and more on my days off. That often surprises people!
What’s your favorite movie? Favorite song/artist?
My favorite movie would probably be Addams Family Values. It’s an older movie but I enjoy the mix of dark humor and core family values. Ultimately, as quirky and weird as they are, they’re a family that loves each other and sticks by each other and there’s magic in that. Also, Debbie is the best antagonist in movie history. As for music, I love Perfume which is a j-pop group consisting of three members. I’ve been a fan since 2006 and I’ve seen them live four times. Their live visuals are so incredible and unique. You’ll never see anything like it anywhere else. Check them out!
How does it feel to be part of the DTS Freshman Class of streamers, and what are you looking forward to most?
It feels incredible to be acknowledged and invited to be a part of the DTS Freshman Class! I’m really excited to get to know the other freshmen and work together to create really fun promotions and events.
When you’re not gaming, what do you like to do for fun?
Honestly, I feel like I don’t have a lot of free time these days because I stream, work, and I’m a student. But, if I do have free time, I really enjoy spending it with my dog and reading. I’m a huge Agatha Christie fan and I love murder mystery novels. I also really love going to karaoke which is quite big here in Japan. But I obviously haven’t been able to do that too much this year in 2020 which makes me very sad.
If you could have any superpower, what would you pick and why?
As someone who lives abroad and hates airplanes, being able to teleport would be really convenient and save me a lot of money. But knowing me, I’d probably end up teleporting to the middle of the Atlantic Ocean or something…
