DTS FRESHMAN CLASS: UMINOKAIJU
I started gaming on the nintendo 64 with my dad when I was a kid but once school started we couldn’t afford any of the new games/consoles so I got into dancing at 13
^^ Joined highschool dance team and continued in college with hip hop dance groups in Houston —- eventually competed and won 2nd place at World of Dance Houston!!
After highschool I went to college/nursing school and started gaming (league of legends) in school to distract myself from things I couldn’t control (stress). I joined a league tournament which introduced me to Twitch & streamers
Graduated nursing school but got partnered on Twitch the next month (Jan 2014) and started streaming a lot more and ever since I’ve been financially stable to continue doing so! Parents/family were skeptical at first but one thing that opened their eyes to my financial stability was when my house flooded from Hurricane Harvey and my community helped raise $10K to re-build the house. They took me and streaming a lot more seriously after that 🙂
I have been streaming full-time for 6.5 years and my only dream is to be able to continue while making more lifelong friends and memories.
What game(s) do you play?
League of Legends, Valorant, Fortnite, PUBG, APEX, TFT, Sims, Temtem and I like to try out new games any time I can!
What’s your favorite movie? Favorite song/artist?
I DON’T HAVE A FAVORITE ANYTHING – it’s rough 🙁 but I LOVE the action genre. I would only go to the movie theater for an action movie. For songs – anything I can dance to.
How does it feel to be part of the DTS Freshman Class of streamers, and what are you looking forward to most?
IT FEELS AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I am so grateful and honestly, it’s hard to believe. The thing I’m looking forward to the MOST is making memories with the crew. Streaming can be a lonely life with superficial relationships but having a DTS FAMILY… That’s gonna be the best.
When you’re not gaming, what do you like to do for fun?
Go out to eat/disneyland (with my annual pass), hang out with friends, learn dances for tiktok, watch netflix and ANIME! Shopping is pretty fun too hehe.
If you could have any superpower, what would you pick and why?
I would be an airbender.. for sure. Maybe be able to teleport so that I don’t have to wake up early to travel somewhere far… or maybe snap my fingers and be ready in an instant because I HATE GETTING READY.
