BarefootTasha is Now Loading...

Loveleen Kaur / ONE37pm

We gotta admit - BarefootTasha is one of the wildest Twitch streamers we've ever seen. Whenever she goes live, we know what to expect - pure hilarity that stems from the social media challenges she participates in and all the gut-bustlingly funny reactions she elicits while playing a whole host of varied games. The self-appointed president of "Club Barefoot" entertains every time she indulges in hours-long sessions with a whole host of first-person shooters, indie games, and so much more. And thanks to her growing brand, she's done some work with the likes of Reebok, Logitech, Epic Games, and more. We spent some time chopping it up with BarefootTasha, who took us through her earliest days as a gamer, what led her towards creating gaming content, and more.


ONE37pm: What attracted you to gaming as a whole? 

BarefootTasha: Gaming has been a large part of my life since I was about 10 years old. The first console I played on was the NES that was at my grandparent's house - I love games like Super Mario Bros. 3, The Legend of Zelda, and Kirby's Adventure. My cousins and I would spend our summers at my grandparents' house and play in the pool, but we would also play video games. It was something that I looked forward to every year and brought me a great amount of joy. From there, I just never stopped gaming.

ONE37pm: And what would you say are the games that shaped you into the person you are today?

BarefootTasha: When I think of games that shaped me, two very different games come to mind - Kingdom Hearts and the first Call of Duty: Black Ops. Kingdom Hearts molded that go-getter mentality and the passion for the things I love, while Call of Duty: Black Ops gave me the backbone to stand up for myself.

ONE37pm: I peeped the Jamaican flag on your Twitter profile! Shout out to you for that. Now we all know Jamaican parents can be quite strict, but they often mean well. Were they a bit put off by your gaming habits or did they embrace them?

BarefootTasha: For a long time, my parents were not on board with the idea of me pursuing gaming at all. Especially because, to them, video games were like TV - all those things are a distraction and a waste of time. Eventually, things changed when I started making money from gaming.
