Interview with Sortiez:
What made you want to start streaming?
I was already daily uploading to YouTube for a year before I started streaming (not gaming videos), so when I found out about fortnite and Twitch I wanted to start streaming because my YouTube wasn’t really going anywhere, so I saved up for my first pc and started streaming.
What is your favourite thing about streaming on Twitch?
Being able to meet so many different people has to be my favorite thing, I’ve met some of my closest friends through streaming which is literally insane to think about.
Have you got any goals you wish to accomplish?
My main goal right now would be working my way to Twitch partnership
What do you do outside of streaming?
Outside of streaming all I do is spend time with my family, besides that, I just do my school work and work on behind the scenes stuff for my stream.
Before Fortnite, did you play any video games?
Yes I did, I’ve been playing Call of Duty since I was a very little kid so that’s pretty much all I’ve played my whole life (besides Fortnite, of course).
Do you see Twitch as a career path or a hobby?
I see it as a hobby as of right now, but the goal is to make it a career path in the future.
Do you enjoy school? What would you like to do once you leave school?
I do enjoy school, but I have no idea what I want to do after. Probably something to do with computer science.
Do you think you will ever switch to Mixer? Are you happy with Twitch?
I don’t think I’ll ever change platforms because I’ve already built a community on Twitch, and I think changing streaming platforms would ruin it, but yes I am happy with Twitch and I’m excited to see what the future holds for it.
