GC: What was your reaction when you found out your were nominated for this award?

Carlaful: I was shocked because I didn’t think I would be big enough to receive recognition. It means so much to me because I put all my spare time into Twitch (I also work full time). It feels wonderful making my community proud!

GC: You have said you started streaming randomly through your iPad over six months ago, can you describe your experience as a streamer so far?

Carlaful: It’s crazy! I didn’t even know what Twitch was last year, I wish I found it sooner. My experience has been so positive and uplifting. Twitch gives me a purpose and really motivates me to be a better person. I have streamed over 1,100 hours already and I can’t wait to keep growing our little community, it’s really so special.

GC: Tell us a bit about your relationship with your community.

Carlaful: Where do I start?! They’re the most amazing people I have ever met. Our community is a little family, it sounds so cheesy but it’s so true! We care about each other and talk every single day. We are all friends, I don’t like to call them my viewers because it feels more than that. I try to remember first names and their time zones to add a more personal touch. I am very interactive so I think people feel so welcome and safe when they’re in my streams. That is a beautiful thing.

GC: Is there anything else you would like to add?

Carlaful: The biggest thank you to my little Schnack Fam! Thank you for watching everyday and making me feel valued and loved. You are all very special to me and you make my streams possible. Always remember how much I appreciate all of you! My last thank you is to Adam- thank you for cooking meals for me while I tried to keep the stream consistent. Thank you for always believing in me. You’re the real MVP!

Carlaful streams seven days a week on her Twitch channel, and she can also be found on both Instagram and Twitter.

When I’m not addressing my addiction to Overwatch, I like to dabble in the odd JRPG with some favourites coming from the Final Fantasy franchise. I’m a sucker for games with great stories and fantastic music but I also love a good nostalgia trip with some oldies but goodies. I’m currently studying Journalism at the University of Technology Sydney and as a video games enthusiast, I love being able to report on them to my heart's content.
