I started my YouTube channel after a fun bet with my friend. The goal was to reach 2,50,000 subscribers on the platform within the span of a year, and that’s how I embarked on my journey. My life has been full of ups and downs, drama and a lot of people.
After kicking off my eSports career, I’ve been fortunate enough to meet a lot of new and talented people. I’ve learned a lot over the past few years, and every experience has made me a better gamer. So, without further ado, here are some tidbits from my personal life that you may or may not have heard of yet!
