For our readers who might not be familiar, could you introduce yourself and what you do?

Lim: I’m a Twitch streamer with a combined total following of 100,000 people. Think of like Youtube, but with everything done in live on camera in broadcasted to an online audience. Due to this, it’s not rare for streamers to develop close relationships to their viewers which I don’t think happens a lot on Youtube. I stream roughly 6-8 hours every single day. I spend more time with my community then my own family at times. Everyone has a different approach to streaming, but for me I like to be energetic, and always trying to find new ways to make people laugh. If I can give someone comfort or just act as distraction only if its for a few, then I’ve done my job. 

From where do you draw inspiration?

Lim: I draw inspiration from my mother. As a kid growing up my family was very poor and we were unable to afford anything. We couldn’t afford any family vacations either, so it prides me that I’m able to take her to Disney world for the fourth of July this year as well as sending her money whenever she needs it. 

Besides your career, what else are you passionate about?

Lim: I love mixed martial arts (MMA). I am obsessed with it. People think of MMA as barbaric, but to me it’s one of the most technical sports in the world. Besides training 3-4 times a week, I watch highlights, fights, as well as technique demonstrations on Youtube all the time. 

Why do you EDC?

Lim: Never thinking about what I need and having it all ready gives me the push to start my day and do what needs to be done.

Is there a particular everyday product you’ve been meaning to add to your EDC? If not, what’s your favorite item out of all your daily essentials?

Lim: I think I wanna get one of those huge battery pack portable chargers so I never have to worry about a dead phone again. 

Given your profession, what advice, tip, or secret would you offer to our readers?

Lim: I’ve made many mistakes throughout my career on Twitch but I didn’t let those mistakes define who I am as a person. I owned up to them and moved on. Success isn’t an overnight success, either. It’s days of grinding, sleepless nights, and a lot of stress. Nothing in this world worth anything is easy to obtain otherwise it wouldn’t be worth so grind and take whats yours!
