Fuslie – whose real name is Leslie Fu – is an American gamer and singer, born under the zodiac sign of Sagittarius on 27 November 1992 in the USA. She’s best known for being a successful Twitch streamer, and YouTube content creator.
Early Life & Ethnicity
Although not much is known about Fuslie’s family, it’s been confirmed she is of Chinese origin. Further details about her childhood and early education are unknown.
She attended the Irvine-based University of California (UCI), where she studied Veterinary Science. However, in 2015 – a year before her graduation – she started reconsidering her career election, as one of her teachers told her she wasn’t fit for it: ‘That really hit me, and that was something that I held with me, if a vet of 20 years is telling me that I shouldn’t be a vet, maybe I shouldn’t be a vet. So I was thinking about this a lot more’.
Before graduating from UCI, she took a year off and became a tutor while considering other professional options: ‘I was in a program that had me working with students, and I really enjoyed it, so I went home one day and said this path is not for me, I am going into teaching, so last minute, my last quarter at UCI, I switched into teaching.’
During her year off, Fuslie tried to obtain more credits before entering her Graduate School to become a teacher.
However, soon she found herself more invested in video games than in her profesión, due to her roommates’ Billy, Alex and Raymond’s insistence: ‘Those three guys, they introduced me to “League of Legends” (LoL) and I couldn’t remember a time that I had more fun with a group of friends than playing league. And I realized like, ‘wow, I’ve been missing out on like gaming and just this whole experience I’ve been missing out on my whole life’. I’d played “Pokemon” in the past, but really for online gaming, the closest I’d done was “Neopets” when I was like a kid,’ she commented in an interview with Streamlabs.
Her sudden interest in video games took a different route though, as suggested by her friend Alex that she start streaming her gaming escapades on the platform Twitch.
Although Fuslie wasn’t an experienced gamer, she started sharing videos on the platform for fun: ‘I wasn’t super concerned about it when I first started. I remember being excited that there were people, like even five people to like nerd out about LoL with me. Because when I talk about league with my friends, everyone would be like, no, but online you get all the support, like, yeah, new patch notes!’
Despite enjoying sharing her interests with people on the Internet, as she started creating more content she found that she wanted to be watched by more people. This led her to become involved with an online gaming community, which Fuslie considers was a crucial point of her growth as a streamer, as she started getting support from people who appreciated her videos: ‘Don’t just start streaming out of nowhere and expect people to just watch you.
Like, why is someone going to watch you? If you’re part of a community and you’ve been involved, maybe like other community members will come by and say, hi, stop by, drop a follow because they know you from that community.’
Although Fuslie recommends that finding people with interests in common is important to grow as a streamer, she considers genuine interactions are just as important in the gaming community, as it could create strong ties and even friendships.
What started as a hobby became Fuslie’s passion, reason for which – six months after starting on Twitch – she decided to drop out of her master degree, due to the pressure she felt trying to produce new content while dealing with her studies at the same time.
Who Inspires Her?
Fuslie has revealed that one of the first streamers she found during her beginnings was Pokimane, who left a good impression on her: ‘I thought her streams were so great. I thought she had such a wonderful personality. She held herself so well. I remember just being really inspired by her.’
Besides admiring other famous streamers such as xChocoBars, Fuslie has revealed AnglesKimi was also important for her during her early career: ‘Right when I first started she had started just before me. And I remember like looking at her profile being like, ‘wow, she has everything together’. Her panels, just the way she holds herself, everything.’
Other Games and YouTube
Besides LoL, Fuslie has also played games such as “Counter Strike”, “H1Z1”, “Detroit” and “The Last of Us”. She doesn’t have an itinerary of what games to play, choosing whatever fits her mood at the moment.
This has led her to become a variety content creator, with a video repertoire that includes covers of songs, and the renovation of her gaming studio.
In August 2015 she posted her first video on YouTube, and to date has attracted more than 200,000 subscribers ton her platform.
Fuslie is currently in a romantic relationship with Edison Park, who is also a Twitch streamer. He was a manager of the gaming channel Offline TV, though he left the position in 2019.
In March 2019 Fuslie accepted Park’s marriage proposal during a livestream on his Twitch channel.
In an interview with Streamlabs, she confessed she didn’t have an idea her boyfriend-turned-fiance was going to propose: ‘We had talked about it like a lot as like a joke or we’d like been memeing about it on stream, you know. It was like a thing in my chat to be like, it’s time and there’d be a ring anytime. It pretty much was just like an ongoing joke, but when he actually like pulled out the ring I was just in shock. Genuinely, if you go back to the clip I genuinely thought it was a chipotle burrito. Like he pulled out a bag and I’m like, I remember thinking like, is he proposing? And then I remember going, no, he’s not, that’s ridiculous.’
It has been speculated that Fuslie is pregnant, however, these rumors appear unfounded as she hasn’t shown any indications of expecting a child.
Fuslie has an estimated net worth of over $100,000, which is largely a result of her work as a Twitch streamer and YouTube content creator.
Fuslie has gorgeous facial features and a slim figure. However, her height and current weight are unknown.

Her first experience with shooter games was “Counter-Strike”.
Fuslie’s designs and merchandise can be found in Metathreads.
She has said a bed is the strangest gift she has ever received from a fan.
Traveling is one of the favorite activities: ‘I love, love, love traveling. I think that’s something I realized after traveling so much this year. Berlin, Korea, Vegas, just all over the place. I want to see more and more and more of the world. So when I’m not streaming, I’m like planning a trip or I’m looking up like places in the world.’
She greatly enjoys fan meetings and gaming conventions: ‘it’s incredible, it’s a surreal thing to have people jump out of their computer screen and they will say their name and I’m like, ‘Oh my goodness, I’ve seen you in my chat every day for a year and now you are here in the flesh’.’
