Who is hoops and how did you come up with your name?

I'm hoops is kind of derived from my love for basketball man and I've just kind of wanted to have something that was individualized to me everybody kind of knows that I played basketball may know that I love sports. So I just thought that that would be the most appropriate name for me

What kind of hobbies do you have? What do you like to do outside of streaming?

I have a few of my main hobbies, um, youknow, even a lot of my viewers don't even know I love poetry.Ilove being able to go out and being nature. I like to go camping, I like to go on trips. So I'd like to say I'm pretty versatile on like, things that I like to do. I'm not afraid to take a chance and do something different, you know, that maybe I've never done before? And, you know,

What kind of talents do you have that you offer to your viewers?

I think that, you know, the big thing that I've always stressed in my streams is interaction. And that means that, you know, what I want is I want people to be able to come in here, not only for themselves, but bring people together, you know, from all over the world. And just know that this is a place where they can go, they need an escape, and they can be themselves and on.

You don't ever have to feel judged on coming into my stream, you can always talk to me about anything you want to talk to me about cuz I'm very open, and I will. If you need my help, I'll be the first person to steer you in the right direction. So you can kind of get, you know, the help that you need. Or even if you're having a bad day, I like to try to put smiles on people's faces. So, you know, they realize that, you know, even though they're having a bad day today, that doesn't mean that tomorrow can't be better.

What has streaming been like for you? How was your first streaming experience?

Honestly, streaming for me has been a very, very big, vital importance in my life. And something that I've really glad that I found simply because, you know, back in 2016 2017, I was stricken with a very debilitating anxiety disorder, and I just, I was in a really, really dark place in my life, and I just really wanted to, you know, do something that could bring me out of my comfort zone. My first streaming experience, I was nervous, I can't lie.

But what I learned from going live is that, you know, your, your content brings in your viewers, and you should never be afraid to be yourself. And I mean, no matter what, you know, people might think of you, you should never change who you are as a person. Because I feel like it's the people that are actually taking the time to get to know who you are, that are the ones that are truly your supporters.

Have you met anyone off this app? What was that experience like?

Yes, I have. And I've had good and bad experiences, you know, with meeting people in the app. Um, I've maintained friendships off this app, I've been in relationships off this app. And, you know, I just actually got the pleasure to meet a very, very sweet girl on this. And we've been able to revive very, very well. And, you know, I think that that's the most important thing is, you know, to meet different people, because you never know, like, what they could bring to the table that you might be attracted to. So I think that it's, you know, very important that you always interact with your viewers, and, you know, just always put your viewers first.

What kind of tips would you give people who wants to start out streaming?

The tips that I give to somebody who wanted to start out streaming, I would definitely say that, you know, um, although it sounds intimidating, it could be something that you know, you absolutely fall in love with. And, you know, it gives you an outlet to, like I said before, my previous question, it gives you a, an outlet to be uncomfortable, but also, you get to socialize with different people all over the world.

You need to definitely be very interactive with your viewers, you need to also understand that, you know, you might have, every once in a while, you might have a dry streams. And these are things that happen when you live stream, you might not always get the viewers that you want, but at the end of the day, you know, it's a grind, and you got to be willing to take that grind. And you're going to get to where you want to go, whether you are on this for diamond purposes, or you're on this just to maintain friendships, you know, people are going to come and see your life specially if you know, you're bringing the concept that they want to see. Sure.

Is there anything else you would like to mention to the viewers?

Yeah, absolutely. Excuse me. Um, I would definitely say to my viewers, you know, and I'm speaking directly to my viewers right now. Um, it would be, I wouldn't be where I am today without them. And every stream that I have
on this app, I always make sure that at the end of every live,

I give them the credit for coming in here and showing me love because I know it's genuine. I know that they're actually show supported me what I'm trying to do. And, you know, it's, it makes me feel good, because I know that what I'm doing, I'm not doing it for no reason. And I think that the most important thing is if somebody is willing to show you love, and really care about what you're doing and support you, why not show that love back?

Why not show that love back and why not give them the opportunity to really see who you are as a person. I think that that's extremely important. You have to let people in. Otherwise they're never going to know who you are.
