Born in England on October 22, 1992, Alia Marie Shelesh is a Youtube gamer who is better known by her handle, sssniperwolf. She gained popularity online thanks to her videos on game titles such as Call of Duty and Metal Gear Solid. She is also known for video game character cosplays; a lot of her videos are what is known as “reaction videos.” Her handle name is based on a character from Metal Gear Solid. The other games she specializes in are Overwatch, Destiny and Far Cry. Her other channel focuses on DIY stuff, such as makeup and buying clothes.
Though most of the content on her Youtube or Twitter channels is not exclusively about gaming anymore, she still has one of the largest number of followers, with over 16 million subscribers. She is of Turkish-Greek ethnicity and has a younger sister and 2 younger brothers. She has been hooked to gaming since her father gifted her a PlayStation 1 on her 8th birthday (she has also said that it was a gift so that she could stop fighting with her brothers). The family moved to Arizona from England when she was still a kid.
Education and Career
She has always been good at gaming, and her parents have always acknowledged and encouraged this talent. She has also said that she started playing video games just to prove that girls could be good at playing video games as well. After her high school education (she graduated a semester early), she attended community college but has admitted in some of her videos that she was not too crazy about the experience because of her lack of interest. She has said that it was the lack of friends and rude teachers that made her drop out of there.
She soon transferred to another college and took up studying to become a pharmacist, but she has said that she hates chemistry as a subject, and that forced her to change her major to nursing. But that was not doing her any favors either; she announced that she might go back to college to pursue a degree in game design. In the same video, she urges people not to stop going to school because it is important, and “YouTubing” does not pay as much as people think it does.
She has been in a relationship with fellow YouTuber Evan Sausage, who started commenting on her videos when she made her debut. After an exchange of several hundred messages and late-night Skype calls, the two became friends, which eventually turned to romance. Since then, they have bought a house together and she has kept her fans updated about what is happening between the two of them.
