This week we spoke to Anna from the AnnaPlayz_ stream. We've known Anna for quite some time and we have enjoyed watching her grow as a streamer over the last couple of years. We were even fortunate to have met Anna at PAX 2017 and had the pleasure of having Anna be one of our official affiliates too. Read more about Anna below.

Origins of Name:

Anna: I use to go by my gamer tag (which I still use outside of streaming), but it was always mispronounced by people who didn't know me. When I started to post more on social media I decided to change it to AnnaPlayz_. It was only meant to be temporary, but in the end, it just kinda stuck.

What influenced you to stream:

Anna: I wanted to stream for quite a few years before I started. The streamers I watched always made it look like a lot of fun and a great way to make friends.

Experience in Working with Brands:

Anna: I'm currently an Ambassador for GGWP Academy, who are creating smarter influence through education for streamers. I've also had the privilege to work with AK Racing as an Affiliate. Having the opportunity to create these relationships in the industry has really enriched my journey as a streamer.

What Games are you currently playing:

Anna: I've been streaming a lot of Minecraft lately, as well as working my way through the Portal games. Off stream, I’ve been playing Hunt Showdown with my mates

Top Tips for New & Existing Streamers:

Anna: 

Be yourself! As cliche as it sounds, I believe there's a place for everyone in streaming.

Get amongst the community - it has so much to offer!

Consistency is key - scheduling your stream is a great way to build an audience.
