Getting to know Asikaa
1) When did you start streaming and on what platform?
“I originally started streaming on Twitch in 2013. It was for my World of Warcraft guild so people could learn about raiding and PvP. I took a break because my internet sucked, but came back again in 2015.”
2) Who is your favorite streamer and why?
“TimTheTatman was always someone I would watch before I streamed in the early days. I just love his vibe, his energy, and the way he streams. It's been crazy watching him succeed over the years.”
3) What streaming equipment or software could you not live without?
“Honestly my GoXLR was the best thing I bought for my set-up. Having 2 PC's audio has always been a headache, and the GOXLR was the piece that simplified and brought it all together for me. Plus I always sing happy birthday to my viewers on their birthdays, so the auto tune comes in handy 😂”
4) What are your top goals this year?
“Continue to just grow and make waves on Twitch. It has been crazy coming back after moving to Mixer for 3.5 years. Things have changed a ton since I left! I can't wait for my first Twitchcon and to really start getting my name out there again. I don't have any goals for followers or subs, I am really just trying to focus on the quality of the connections I make and not worry about the numbers so much!”
5) Tell us a bit about some of the communities you're involved in.
"Qweerty Gamers is a non-profit organization that champions inclusion and visibility of LGBTQ gamers in the broader gaming world. They have recently launched a grant program to support creators financially on a variety of costs related to working in the gaming industry such as software, tech, tuition, and cost of living. It has been really awesome joining their community and getting to know them. I think it's great to see organizations supporting streamers in a way that allows them to focus on what is important - Creating.
I have also partnered recently with Astro and I have been really happy to see the effort they put in to not only make people feel welcome to be a part of Astro, but also to support diversity in the gaming space. They have been amplifying some important voices in the community and providing a lot of support for ideas and initiatives within the team."
6) Given your experience, what's your best piece of advice for our Quick Droppers that game/stream?
"Whatever you do in life don't be afraid to say yes to something. It's not easy when anxiety or fear creeps in, but silence that voice and push yourself to try new things, because you never know where saying yes to something can take you!"
