TWITCH

On Twitch you can find me as annahetkinen

I am a variety streamer, including categories like video gaming, live music performances and chatting streams.

My schedule changes from time to time due to studies and work, but I update it weekly through my blog on this website. That way, you can always find out what I´m up to for the next few weeks, as my schedule otherwise is still somewhat unstable.

On the good times though, I try to stream 3 times a week, about 4-6 hr/stream. 

Why should you follow me on Twitch?

On Twitch I´m usually rather casual with my viewers, and my streams are for mature audiences. This means the language I am using on stream is somewhat different than what I would use in e.g. a teaching environment. I do not support violence, abuse or discrimination of any way. This platform is just a way to connect more directly and more authentically with the people watching, which I like and respect. 

Through my streams I wish to give an outlet for viewers to relax and have fun, while at the same time I like to talk openly about traveling and living abroad, among other topics. For that reason I also created the "Friends over" streams, which include my oldest and best friend, Alex as a co-host. I encourage my viewers to ask questions and I hope to open their minds about safe traveling and immigration.

On my music streams, on the other hand, I try to offer a more "intimate" live music experience to my audience (small concerts where I am playing and singing), while including some advice for vocal training, a healthy lifestyle and body positivity.  

Goals achieved: 

-I have a Patreon now! Through Patreon you can have access to exclusive content, such as short vocal coaching videos, Q&A videos and exclusive interviews of streamers, artists, musicians etc. 

-I now am collaborating with a classical pianist so that we can have local concerts and enter competitions, and you will also see some of our rehearsals on stream. Possibly even short live concerts! 

-I have a better camera, so that I can have a better sound when live singing :) 

My goals for the future:

My long term goal is to become a full-time streamer, where I could stream 4 times a week, and upgrade the variety and quality of streams I am offering so far, such as:

- Keeping the "Friends over" chatting streams and including even more topics, such as culture, education, interviews with other streamers, artists, performers etc.

-Collaborating with a second contemporary pianist or guitarist in order to upgrade also the pop music streams.

-Including more vocal training and self-expression advice to my viewers, who might be thinking about taking up singing as a hobby, would like some inspiration as performers, or are just streaming for several hours a day and trying to maintain their vocal abilities to a high standard is also important to me as a professional vocal coach. I would love to help others find confidence through music and help keep their voices healthy and shining.

- Ideally, I would love to rent a small studio, or at least enhance my home acoustics with proper sound insulation, which would make the environment more streaming-friendly. 

- I´d like to be able to try out more video games and on different consoles, in order to keep my viewers´ interest peaked (right now I play on gaming laptop, games that are purchased through Steam). 

-Posting more material like stream highlights on Youtube. 

For all the aforementioned purposes, and many more ideas that come to mind every day, I am committed to continue streaming consistently, keeping up with the needs of my viewers and making my channel more professional stream by stream.
