She has an older sister and a younger brother who is the YouTuber DigitalDaveYT. She also a ginger cat called ‘Tigger.’ Her parents have always encouraged her streaming aspirations.
She chose her name due to her love for fps games and the fact that she was good at headshots.
ONE_shot_GURL’s first console was a Sega Game Gear that she started playing when she was around eight years old. While she was growing up, she played video games on a variety of different consoles together with her parents and siblings. They also played a variety of board games and TCGs, with her favorite game being The Sims on the PC. She completed her Music Degree in 2012.
Prior to streaming fulltime, she worked as a part-time freelance video editor.
She originally began streaming variety games on YouTube in June 2015 because she wanted to interact with others during her gameplays and felt that it would serve as a good medium for her to combine her passions for creating music, playing video games and creating videos. She was in a job that she didn’t enjoy, at the time and she wasn’t sure what she wanted to do, so she decided to try creating YouTube content to see how that would go. The idea came to her suddenly, as she hadn’t really considered it as an option before, but she discovered that she really enjoyed doing it and has stuck with it ever since.
By August 2015, she had reached 1,000 subscribers. She also started streaming on Twitch on September 7, 2017 and received Twitch partnership in July 2018. Although she started out as a variety streamer, ONE_shot_GURL now usually streams Fortnite, with the occasional variety stream.
Daily from 22:00 UTC. She usually streams for between 4 – 5 hours per session.
[If you want to get subscribers] first and foremost, be yourself. It’s really easy to see who’s authentic on YouTube, who’s genuine and who isn’t… and then also, if you’re going to do a gaming channel, play the games that you love, because you’re only going to have so much time, you’re only going to have so much energy, you’re only going to have so much money… So, just make sure that you’re having fun, because that’s what matters. If you’re not having fun, it’s going to show, but if you’re having fun that’s what people are going to see, and that’s what they want to watch on your channel.
