Soonaah’s Twitch Journey: Balancing Air Force duties and passion for gaming

We had the pleasure of interviewing Soonaah, an Air Force gamer and Twitch streamer. Here are the excerpts from the interview. 

Hi Soonaah, Great to have you with us today! Please share with our readers about yourself.

Greetings, everyone! I am a 33-year-old air force gamer dedicated to both serving my country and sharing my love for gaming with the world. By day, I proudly wear the uniform, taking on the challenges and responsibilities of an active-duty air force member. But when the sun sets, I transform into a Twitch streamer.

On my Twitch channel, I embark on thrilling gaming adventures, primarily focused on the fast-paced world of Apex Legends. I bring my years of experience in FPS games to the forefront, showcasing my skills and strategic thinking to entertain and engage my viewers. But it’s not just about the gameplay; I strive to create an inclusive and interactive community, fostering intellectual conversations that challenge our viewpoints and expand our horizons.

In a nutshell, I’m a dedicated air force professional by day and a passionate gamer by night, seeking to combine the best of both worlds and share my gaming journey with an incredible community of like-minded individuals. It’s an honor to be here and share my story with you all!

Please tell us more about your Twitch channel. 


Absolutely! When it comes to streaming on Twitch, I’ve crafted a schedule that fits both my air force commitments and my passion for gaming. On weekdays, you can find me live in the afternoons, Central Standard Time, immersing myself in the virtual worlds and engaging with my amazing community. However, when the weekend arrives, I become a morning person, starting the day off right with some energetic gaming sessions.

Speaking of community, one of the most incredible aspects of streaming on Twitch is the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who share a love for gaming and all the excitement this platform has to offer. I’ve been fortunate enough to meet and interact with a diverse group of viewers, fostering a positive and inclusive community where everyone’s voice is heard and respected. It’s truly a joy to see familiar faces return and new ones join the ranks, making my channel feel like a virtual home for gamers.

So, to all the viewers out there, I extend a warm invitation to join me on my Twitch channel. Whether it’s in the afternoon or during those lively weekend mornings, we’ll dive into epic battles, engage in thought-provoking discussions, and share plenty of laughter along the way. I can’t wait to see you all there, and together, let’s make gaming memories that will last a lifetime!

Please share with our readers about your journey.

My journey into streaming has been an exciting adventure fueled by my passion for gaming and the support of a dear friend. As an active-duty air force member and a dedicated family man, my competitive gaming aspirations had taken a backseat, as my commitments demanded my time and attention.

However, my perspective shifted when a good friend of mine, who had retired from the Air Force, ventured into the world of streaming. Seeing his enthusiasm and the connections he was making with fellow gamers on this platform, he became a beacon of inspiration for me. His encouragement and belief in my abilities sparked a fire within me to carve out time for streaming and dive headfirst into this new chapter.

With newfound determination, I meticulously planned and found the perfect balance between my responsibilities to my family, the Air Force, and my gaming aspirations. I carved out dedicated time to stream, creating a space where I could showcase my competitive spirit while maintaining the important aspects of my life that I hold dear.

Thanks to my friend’s encouragement and my newfound time management skills, I’ve been able to embark on this thrilling streaming journey. It’s an opportunity to not only indulge in my gaming passion but also connect with an incredible community of gamers and share the joy and excitement of virtual adventures together.

I’m immensely grateful for the support and inspiration that my friend provided, and I’m excited to continue this journey, exploring the possibilities that streaming has to offer. Who knows what exciting adventures await? The sky’s the limit, both in the Air Force and on Twitch!

What are the strategies that helped you become successful in your journey? 

It’s a culmination of several key factors that have propelled me forward. First and foremost, networking has played a significant role. Building connections and fostering relationships within the gaming community has allowed me to learn from others, collaborate with like-minded individuals, and discover new opportunities to expand my reach.

Another crucial aspect that has contributed to my success is authenticity. I firmly believe in being genuine and true to myself both on and off the stream. By sharing my thoughts, experiences, and even occasional vulnerabilities, I’ve been able to create an authentic connection with my viewers. It’s this genuine bond that keeps them coming back, knowing they can expect an authentic experience every time they tune in.

Communication is another vital factor that has helped me thrive as a streamer. Whether it’s engaging with my viewers in real time, responding to chat messages, or actively participating in conversations, effective communication strengthens the sense of community. It’s about actively listening, valuing the opinions of others, and creating a safe space for everyone to express themselves.

Last but not least, let’s not forget about the game itself. A key ingredient in my success has been honing my skills and being good at the game I love to play, like Apex Legends. It’s the combination of strategy, quick reflexes, and the joy of improvement that keeps viewers engaged and excited to join me on my gaming adventures.

By combining networking, authenticity, communication, and my gaming prowess, I’ve been fortunate enough to find success on my streaming journey. But it’s not just about me—my community plays an integral role as well, supporting and inspiring me every step of the way. Together, we create a vibrant and dynamic space where we can all celebrate the love of gaming and the joy it brings to our lives.

Fantastic! So tell us, how can people find out more about you?
