SSSniperWolf Real Name, Wiki, Sister
SSSniperWolf’s Real Name is Alia “Lia” Shelesh. She began playing video games when she was just 6 years old and got the nickname name SSSniperWolf from a gaming character in Metal Gear Solid, which was her favorite game as a kid. In order to get her and her younger brother to stop fighting, Lia’s dad got her her first gaming console, a Play Station, when she was 8 years old.
Lia has two younger brothers and a kid sister whom she is very fond of. Regular visitors of her Youtube channel and social media pages have seen numerous videos of Lia and her kid sis.
Lia who was born on October 22nd, 1992 is 8 years older than her sister, a fact she revealed in one of her videos. She was born in England but as her family grew to include two more children, her parents relocated from their overcrowded apartment to Arizona, US.
Always labeled as the weird girl while growing up, SSSniperWolf has revealed that she began playing video games to prove “that girls can play and be good at video games too.”
Sniper graduated from high school one semester early and then proceeded to attend a local community college. However, it didn’t quite work out as she loathed every day of it, thanks to rude teachers, getting constantly hit on by guys and lack of friends.
Not even a transfer to a different college changed her emotions towards college. Wolf had transferred to a different school where she began studying pharmacist, however, her dislike for chemistry added to her plight. She switched to nursing but that didn’t quite do any magic. Soon she was fed up and decided to drop out.
In January 2013, Lia started her YouTube channel, SSSniperwolf. Fast forward to about two years later, she had hit 1 million subscribers, that number enjoyed a rapid rise to 2, 3, 5 and 6 million in 2017. She has over 1 billion views.
SSSniper is really talented with her fingers, in addition to pressing gamepads, she is good with craft. In one of her Youtube videos she revealed, “I like to make stuff…I’ve always been into crafts, like making things around the house, making bracelets, decorating—you know, Martha Stewart s***.”
Her love for craft is what led her to create her second YouTube channel LittleLiaWolf, in 2014 where she posts DIY videos.

Wolf has taken fans through the progress of their relationship posting videos with titles like “We Broke Up,” “Break Up Update,” and “How We Got Back Together.” However, she has been criticized and accused of using her relationship status to drive viewership on her channel anytime it seems to be getting low.
There has been an unconfirmed rumor surrounding their relationship that Lia is only dating Sausage because he is the actual person behind all her gameplay videos and live streams. The rumors began to swirl after many began to wonder why a girl as hot as Lia would be dating uhmmm a non-six-packed non-Hollywood-esque Sausage.

Lia is incredibly good at hula popping. “When I was in sixth grade, I got top prize in my school for a hula-hooping contest,” she revealed in one of her videos. “Weird, but I am crazy good at hula hooping.”
She didn’t see a doctor for 12 straight years. Lia revealed this fact in one of her videos posted in 2014 which made it 10 years since she last visited a doctor. She revealed that the reason was that she was “terrified because a doctor made me take off my clothes for no reason in front of my mom when I was a kid, so I’ve not been to the doctor since then, and I don’t ever think I can.” When she finally overcame her fears to see a doctor in 2016, she told fans about it.
Lia was accused of wanting to do porn after she contacted Pornhub via Twitter. She debunked the rumors in a video saying that she only contacted the porn site to notify them that people were reuploading a solo porn on the site with her nick SSSniperwolf.
