Background

Elz the Witch, who is known only as “Eleanor” online, is a professional gamer, YouTuber, and presenter, from Suffolk, England. Elz started gaming at the age of eight and hasn’t looked back since. She graduated with honors in degree programs in IT, management, and business — a seriously smart and brainy chick! While not much is divulged about her private life, Elz started her YouTube channel in 2018, where she would upload playthroughs of popular games for people to watch.

Elz has claimed that her favorite games of all time are “Final Fantasy 7,” “Zelda Ocarina of Time,” “G.T.A. San Andreas,” and “The Sims.” Although she is a gamer, Elz is more “commercial,” and loves presenting, music, fashion, and makeup. In 2021, it was announced that Elz would be joining KISS F.M. radio in England, where she would form part of the weekend afternoon time slots to showcase new music. She is also part of B.B.C. Sport, the Premier League, and MOTDx presenting teams.

As a famous gamer, Elz has worked with many notable brands such as Adidas, J.D., Sky, and Dell U.K. She also boasts a very impressive following on social media, with over 221,000 subscribers on YouTube and over 19 million views. She also has 269,000 followers on Instagram. Other than gaming, radio, and presenting, Elz hosts a podcast called “Citizen Game” that details all new developments in the gaming world and insider information. She is well on her way to making a huge career for herself, and we are so excited for her!

Why We Love Elz the Witch

  1. She is a feminist

    After playing soccer with the boys at a young age, and then later ending up in the world of I.T., Elz felt that she always needed to downplay her femininity to “fit in.” She then realized that thinking that way was silly, and girls could be in these “male-dominated” roles too. She has said, “This is me, take it or leave it.”

  2. She is true to herself

    She is very open about how she felt growing up as a gamer in a male-dominated industry. She urges people “not to judge a book by its cover.” She also asks fans not to be ashamed of their interest or hobbies.

  3. She is a “boss babe”

    Besides her fruitful gaming career, she is an absolute “boss babe.” She can do it all — in I.T., as a radio presenter, as a sports presenter, and as a product endorser.
