SSSniperWolf's background: Early life and family
Born Alia Shelesh in England to Turkish-Greek parents, SSSniperWolf has always been obsessed with gaming. Her father bought her and her brother a PlayStation when she was six years old.
When she spoke to Vogue in 2020, she explained how the tense situation at home ultimately led her to where she is today:
"When I was younger, my brother and I would get into a lot of fights, so my dad bought us a PlayStation in the hopes that it would calm the waters. It worked — we'd play everything from Metal Gear to Digimon World."
"We were not allowed to go over to our friends' houses, parties, school dances, or even on field trips,"
With nothing else to do, she spent her time gaming, and before long, she was completely hooked. She and her brother would dash for the PlayStation as soon as they got home from school, and they would usually play all weekend, too.
The YouTuber has two brothers and one sister, and she is the oldest. SSSniperWolf sister is YouTuber Ranya Lasagna, whose real name is Ranya Shelesh.
Paul Shelesh is one of her brothers. He was born in 1993 and lives in Glendale, AR like other members of their family. He is a devoted guitar player and a car lover.
The YouTuber's second younger brother is Bakir Shelesh. She used to play video games with him in their primary school years, and she always won.
The Shelesh family lived in an apartment in England, but the apartment soon got cramped, and so they packed up their stuff and moved to the United States.
Shelesh finished high school one semester early and began taking classes at Glendale Community College. She eventually transferred to a university to study to become a pharmacist, then changed to nursing. She finished all of her nursing prerequisites but decided to take a break.
She tweeted in June 2015 that she was considering returning to college to pursue a degree in game design, but she has still not done so.
Alia joined YouTube in 2013. She originally started her YouTube career as a gaming channel, notably with her Call of Duty gameplay. Since 2017, the majority of the content on her channel has been reaction and vlogging videos. Gaming still is part of her channel, but this has slowed down over time.
Alia has one of the biggest female reaction channels with the largest following throughout social media and YouTube. She used to live-stream on Twitch, but now occasionally live-streams gaming on YouTube.
She is renowned for playing popular titles such as Fortnite, Far Cry, Overwatch, Grand Theft Auto, Destiny, Halo, and The Division. She is a fan of first-person shooters and regularly competes in celebrity tournaments.
Today, her YouTube channel has over 22.8 million subscribers and over 8 billion views.
Besides her love for gaming, SSSniperWolf also enjoys designing and crafting her own clothes. Incorporating another hobby into her online profile, she launched a second YouTube channel - Little Lia - dedicated to DIY clothing, fashion reviews, and makeup tutorials.
She is also a huge proponent of anime culture and regularly takes part in the cosplay craze, dressing as characters from games and television.
