(aka Kristen aka Kitty aka KittyPlaysGames) is a Twitch streamer with over 450,000+ followers. She started streaming in early 2013 and mainly plays: Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, WoW and does a ton of moonwalking. The streaming experience she provides to her viewers is best described with a quote from one of her youtube videos:
My stream is about people being able to log in, and come hang out in my chat, and really experience and uplifting vibe, I want people to come in to my stream and feel better about themselves, I want them to come in my stream and feel respected, feel wanted, and feel valued, by not just me and by also my other viewers.
This online superstar did not always have such popularity and fan support; in fact she started online streaming with very humble beginnings. As her streaming days began to add up, she caught a big break while playing World of Warcraft and was “bombed” by Swifty and Sodapop.
Dropping out of school
Kitty tripled her number of channel followers after all raids. A week after being back in class, she decided that school was not for her and that she really wanted to pursue streaming as a career. It was a very tough decision for her to drop out of school, considering that she was only a few semesters short of completing her accounting degree.
To her surprise, Kitty’s parents supported what she was doing albeit them wanting her to do well in school and finishing. With nothing holding her back, Kitty started streaming full-time mid January, 2014 and quickly became a Twitch partner on January 24th.
