Interview with W111KO (@w111ko)

Thank you so much for joining us! Can you tell us a story about what brought you to this specific career path?

Since I was young, I have always aspired to become a content creator and never thought it was possible for the average person until I discovered TikTok. I set up a TikTok account to see what would happen, and in the first few months, I gained over 100,000 followers, and at that point, I realised I could make a career out of this. I am now sitting at 457,000 followers and do this the whole time.

Can you share the most exciting story that happened to you since you started doing this?

I can quit my full-time job to become a content creator. I am friends with multiple verified creators on TikTok, and my content/ videos have been shared and posted all over many platforms by prominent creators.

Which tips would you recommend to your colleagues in your industry to help them thrive and not “burn out”?

You only really need one good video to put you on the map and start your journey on TikTok.

None of us can achieve success without some help along the way. Is there a particular person whom you are grateful towards who helped get you to where you are? Can you share a story?

I have achieved what I’ve got now by myself however, I have had much publicity from @gamelancer and @barstoolgaming

How have you used your success to bring goodness to the world?

My content aims to bring jobs and provide entertainment to people; I have established a thriving community of battlefront two players that all join my live streams and play together. I have also inspired many people to re-download the game and many new players to start playing.

Do you have a favourite “Life Lesson Quote”? Can you share a story of how that was relevant to you in your life?

“Haters will see you walk on water and say it’s because you can’t swim” This quote is perfect for anyone looking at becoming an influencer/ creator as there will always be haters no matter who you are or what your content is, and you have to take what they say with a pinch of salt.

Anything specific you’d like to have mentioned in the article?

I was the reason many Star Wars Battlefront 2 players returned to playing over the last few months, and the community has grown. I am probably the current biggest battlefront creator on TikTok
