According to his chat bot, ‘Collins wanted something positive to add to his name. You can never go wrong with being Educated after all.’
Educated_Collins grew up with very few real friends despite being friendly with a lot of people, especially after middle-school. During that time, he became interested in yoga and meditation.
He started streaming his Hearthstone Arena runs and tips in late 2014 while he was studying Engineering in college. Although his mother was supportive of his career decision, even when he wanted to attempt taking a year-long break from college to attempt it. His dad felt that he should focus more on his studies. He therefore moved out of his parents’ house to attempt it.
However, he wound up crashing at different friends for a while and returned to his parents’ after a few weeks. He also returned to college in mid-2015. He took a break from streaming for a few months in order to adjust. However, he only really got back into streaming in early 2018.
Educated_Collins is estimated to have ~350 subscribers. This should earn him at least $875 USD per month, excluding additional income from sponsorships, tiered subscriptions, tips, Twitch cheer bit donations, merchandise sales and advertisements. He has won $1,500 USD from various Hearthstone tournaments.
