H1ghSky1 is a semi-notorious figure in the Fortnite community, who originally gained recognition in 2018 when he was noticed by both FaZe Yusuf and Tfue who both believed him to be 13. However, after joining FaZe and being promoted as their youngest member, it was discovered that he was actually only twelve. FaZe decided to keep him on and he has continued to grow, largely thanks to this. He streamed on YouTube for a while before returning to Twitch upon turning thirteen.
