I stream Hearthstone Battlegrounds! Come watch to learn, laugh, and make fun of my terrible APM :)
♥ Welcome to the channel! ♥ You can call me **Hapa** (pronounced HAW-Puh) I've been playing Hearthstone since 2014, and streaming since 2018. As of September 2019, I'm making the transition to full-time "content creation!" * My favorite part of streaming on Twitch is the social aspect -- getting to know people from all over the world has been an unexpected and amazing gift. So please feel welcome to chat and hang out. <3 DO NOT COPY PASTE THIS MESSAGE IN CHAT

Some Frequently Asked Questions, and some things that no one asked that I'm answering anyway. **Where you from?** + Born and raised on the Big Island of Hawaii! ❀ Living in the Pacific Northwest currently. **How long have you been playing Hearthstone?** + Since it was released! And pretty much every day since then. :) I never tried to reach legend or do particularly well until I started streaming, though. **What does "Hapa" mean?** + Hapa means "mixed race" in Hawaiian. I chose it as my name becauseI am half Japanese and half Caucasian, and I wanted to bring this word into the general public more as well as claim it as a positive part of my identity. **Do you speak Japanese or Hawaiian in addition to English?** + Sadly, I only speak English. My Japanese mother and mixed-European father are both 3rd-generation Americans, so I have no actual connection to any other countries or languages. **Are you a full-time streamer?** + Now I am! I was working as a server at a few restaurants before I went full-time in September of 2019. Prior to that, I was working in social services. **Did you go to/are you in school?** + Yes! I have a degree in Psychology, and eventually, I'd like to earn my Masters Degree for either Social Work or Counseling and work in a related field. But I'd love to see where Twitch can take me before all of that.
