What was Faze Rain’s Childhood Like?

Faze Rain, formerly known as TrickShotting, was born Nordan Shat in Toronto, Canada on 29th May 1996. He is one of the two children born to his parents. While he was growing, the vlogger was a chubby kid that was full of wits and vivacity. His witty character often landed him into trouble; nevertheless, he managed to focus on his studies and was a grade A student.

After being a happy family for the first seven years of his life, things took a negative turn in subsequent years. The relationship between his parents became tempestuous as they quarrel more often. As a result, Faze Rain became depressed, and his grades began to drop. He then found solace in playing video games, which he later got accustomed to.

However, the relationship between his parents eventually hit rock bottom when his father left the family and never showed up again in their lives. The then-7-year-old Faze was emotionally affected, and he felt alone and abandoned during such time. Even though his mother moved on to remarry, he still felt the absence of his father. Through his mother’s second marriage, Shat now has two half-siblings.

As if the emotional distraught he was facing wasn’t enough, the gamer also suffered heartbreak at the same time. He ended his relationship of about three years with his girlfriend. With so many challenges in his life, Faze Rain decided to put an end to the troubles he was facing by trying to take his own life. He overdosed on Advil, which got him hospitalized for one week. After the failed suicide attempt, the YouTuber then moved on to build a career from what he loves doing most – playing video games.

How Did He Become So Popular on YouTube?

Nordan Shat began going for a therapy session after his failed attempt to take his life. In the process, he came in contact with a physiotherapist called Mary, who advised him to focus more on things that make him happy. Heeding to the advice, he began watching YouTube videos and equally spent ample time playing video games.

Before joining Faze Clan in January 2016, he had been a member of many other gaming groups such as Super, Defy, and Rise. Through the uploads of game-related videos, Nordan Shat became prominent on YouTube as his fan base continued to increase.

What You Should Know About His Suicidal Tweets
