ONE37pm: Okay so your name is one of the better ones I've seen out here! Walk me through the whole process that led to you coming up with it.

KarimCheese: In high school, I was eating lunch one day and I happened to be eating a dry bagel. I was asked "Are you going to put any 'Karim' cheese on that bagel?" and the name has stuck with me ever since! 

ONE37pm: What initially jumpstarted your love for gaming?

KarimCheese: My love for gaming started when I got to play Super Mario Bros. on the Super Nintendo. Also, my love for first-person shooters came when I played GoldenEye 007 for Nintendo 64. 

ONE37pm: What games would you regard as the best of all time and which ones would you classify as your current favorites?

KarimCheese: The best game of all time for me would be The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - it was an amazing experience and you can spend hours and lose yourself. My current favorites consist of Apex Legends, Gundam Evolution, FIFA, and Destiny 2.

ONE37pm: How'd you get interested in live streaming and becoming more of a social media personality in gaming?
