KawaiiGamerGrl

Gaming Vlogger, Let’s Player, Game News Report

Eleni (known on YouTube as KawaiiGamerGrl) was born in San Francisco, where she currently resides. She is best known for her many “Let’s Plays” and “Cheap Gaming News” segments. However, she also studies animation and visual effects, focusing on concept art, and plans on becoming part of creating the games she so enjoys in the future. Aside from gaming, she is also deeply immersed in the cosplay, anime and Sci-Fi culture and you may find her skulking about various conventions. Her passion for these things, as with most, stems from childhood fixations and has followed her into her adulthood. Lastly, while understanding the stigma associated with the phrase “girl gamer” and while being female doesn’t define her, she does affirm to the belief that female gamers do not need to be gender ambiguous in order to be legitimized.
