According to her, video games, “it rejuvenates the mind”. And obviously it appeals to a lot of people since it brings together more than 270,000 subscribers … Since when has it been playing, will you tell me, is it recent, is it passion of a lifetime? Well, imagine that it started 39 years ago. Sometimes she even plays it seven to eight hours a day and she doesn’t regret anything: “Playing video games is the right choice. I see life in pink.” That’s what she said in the Guinness Book.

On her YouTube channel, she not only plays, she also does “vlogs”. These are videos of everyday life. For example, we can see her blow out her 90 candles, she then eats a piece of cake, and quietly returns to the console to play a game of monsters and fights. The video has been viewed over 3 million times!
