Bumfluffski’s featured streamer of the week

Tell us about yourself?

My name is RoxiePika, often called Roxie, Roxanne or Magentz. I am a 27 year old from Cape Town, South Africa. I grew up listening to my parents' music which made my music taste what it is. Disney movies are my love language, yet to lose a Disney quiz. I started gaming about 3 years ago and have been hooked ever since. I studied Hospitality Studies Professional Cookery, specializing in Pastry and also have an Education degree. I am a massive foodie, I love going to new restaurants and trying out new recipes at home, my favourite being Asian influenced recipes. Dumplings are life and no one can tell me otherwise.

Inspiration behind your name?

So my original name was Magentz, because it's a nickname my mom calls me, my middle name is Magenta and a few of my first WoW characters are called Magentz so it just fit. I decided on the name change to RoxiePika because I am a HUGE Pokémon fan and of course I have a favourite, and you guessed it, it's Eevee! RoxiePika just sounded more like me and I am so happy that I made the change.

What games do you play?

Currently I play World of Warcraft. It was one of the first games I played and I was hooked from the get go. I pretty much play anything except horrors. I have a rule that a horror movie/game shall not be watched/played after 5pm, and I hardly ever break it. That being said, I do have goals set to play horror games. I used to play a lot of different games, from Apex Legends to Age of Empires to Sims4 but I always go back to World of Warcraft.

Why did you get into content creation/streaming?

I never thought about streaming until my friend told me that I should start creating cooking content and post it for people to see and learn from. I started streaming in January 2022 and it was the best decision I ever made. The community has been amazing and I have met so many interesting and talented people on this journey. I still have not done any cooking content but it is definitely in the works for future streams.

Are you part of an org or would like to be?

I am currently not part of an organization. I would love to join one in the future and cannot wait to get bigger and give back to everyone that sent me all their love and support.

What can people expect on your channel?

I am trying to ensure that my channel is a cozy, chill place where people can come when they just want to relax and get away from the hustle and bustle of things. I base my content on mount and achievement farming so that people can see how to obtain certain objectives in World of Warcraft. A requirement of my channel is to come with your warm beverage of choice, a blanket is optional and dad jokes are mandatory!

What does the feature mean for you?

For me this has been the most amazing experience. It has given me such a confidence boost and I cannot express how thankful I am that I was chosen. It has given me the recognition I needed in order to realize that I am doing a good job and should try even harder to work on new content and grow my community.

Any shout outs?

I would love to shout out every South African content creator. Honestly I am amazed by the amount of talent that we have in this country. Special shout outs I will just limit myself to three. Firstly, I would like to give a shout out to @Bumfluffski. Without this amazing person, this opportunity would not be possible. He does everything in his power to help everyone in need and keeps his Dm’s open at all times to ensure that anyone can reach him at all times. Secondly, I would like to thank my amazing boyfriend, family and friends who are my constant support through this journey. From dealing with late night streams, to always being in my streams. I truly cannot thank you enough. Lastly, I would like to give a shout out to the person who started me on this journey, @Thamzola. He has been there every step of the way and I would not have started streaming without him constantly pushing me to do it.
