Born in Pakistan, grew up in Florida.
Living in Palo Alto, CA with my husband and soulmate, Frank.
Standing up for what I believe in and pursuing my dreams instead of the ones that others forced upon me.
I had the idea of baking a cake on stream for charity, and gravely misjudged the generosity of the Twitch community. What I thought would be a 3 layer cake turned into a 14-hour+ and an 11-layer behemoth of philanthropy and deliciousness.
I knew I would never cure cancer or invent some revolutionary technology, but I still have an ambitious goal in life: to make people laugh. I was always the ‘class clown’, and in middle school I picked a username that reflected me best: LifeWithLaughs. I would make silly videos with my friends and cute sketches at recess, and as I grew older, I began to invest more time and effort into making LifeWithLaughs a reality. Sadly, year after year, I would just fail: YouTube, Vine, etc. I tried, but I was never able to truly connect with a community. After college, on the verge of quitting on this fantasy of sharing happiness to pursue a more traditional career, I came across a ‘newer’ platform, Twitch, that has literally changed my life. I found a place to interact and connect, to share and absorb, a place with a community filled with kids and adults, men and women, trolls and benefactors, and I’ve even found someone I call my ‘Guardian Angel’.
I’ve struggled for a long time to find my voice, and Twitch is my microphone. It wasn’t too long ago that I started streaming, but this incredible community has given me a glimmer into the future of fulfilling my childhood dreams of bringing LifeWithLaughs to everyone. When I was very young and childish, I daydreamed about building an organization that could bring joy to people, to remind people to live a happy life; thanks to the incredible and passionate Twitch community, I can begin making this dream a reality. Thank you.
