Hello everyone and welcome back to my parlour! My guest this month is someone I was really looking forward to having, and I’m sure you too wanted her here! She’s an amazing person and I am really excited for this interview! Thank you for accepting my invitation Chey!! You guys might know her better as Mettasyn!
Hello! Thank you so much for having me, it’s an honor and a pleasure to be one of your guests!
How did your passion for video games begin?
My passion began when I was a toddler! My Uncle and I are very close in age, he is like a brother to me and we grew up playing video games together and still do to this day even with our busy lives. He had a Sega Genesis we would play Sonic the Hedgehog on and the Nintendo 64 where we loved to play The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, Super Mario 64, Mario Kart 64 and so much more! He was the one who introduced me to Vanilla WoW and ever since then I have been hooked. My cousins, my uncle and I would play video games at family occasions and we would play WoW together a lot. Gaming began to be associated with spending time and having fun with family, it has become a hobby that I love so much, especially now that I have made so many great friends in the community that I enjoy playing with as well.
What’s your all time favorite game?
Definitely World of Warcraft!
What’s your favorite in-game activity?
Questing, transmog/toy/mount collecting, and dungeons for sure…and if I can do any of those with family or friends then that’s even better.
What kept you a fan of the game for so long?
The lore, nostalgia and meeting so many great people in the community is what has kept me hooked!
Are there any other games you play?
Oh, so many haha I do enjoy playing other games like Dragon Age, Sims, Planet Zoo, Call of Duty games, Diablo III, Stardew Valley, Kingdom Hearts, can’t go wrong with Pokémon or Mario games, and I’ve recently started fresh on FFXIV online and have been enjoying it!
What other passions do you have?
Other passions I really enjoy are yoga, digital art, music, hiking, and traveling. The next adventure will probably be Glacier or Yosemite National Park here in the States, I can’t wait!
What brought you to start drawing?
Seeing all the beautiful WoW inspired artwork in the community really is what got me excited to start.
What’s your main source of inspiration?
Definitely the fantasy games I play as well as movies or shows I enjoy at the time.
Tell us more about yourself and your story!
This question is always kind of hard lol. Well, my full name is Cheyenne (shy-ann), I’m 28 years old and I work for Disney. I’m currently working on finishing my Bachelors Degree in Public Relations, finally (one more year!), it’s my next biggest goal. I live with my love, Luke, of 5 years and we both love our video games. I have a strong wanderlust so we’re always trying to plan fun adventures. I absolutely love animals, coffee, digital drawing, and good company. I’m an extremely nice/chill person, I hate drama, I love to laugh but I can be pretty shy until you break my shell.
Your name is absolutely amazing and unique, can you please tell us its origins?
No real great story, my Mom said she heard the name on TV one time, fell in love with it and so she gave me the name!
What’s your favorite thing about working at Disney?
So many things! Being a trainer is one of my favorite things to do, meeting new people, friends, just being in an industry that makes people happy every day. I truly enjoy every aspect about working at Disney.
What are your hopes for the future?
I just hope to live a happy, healthy, fulfilling, adventurous life with people I love and who love me back. I’m learning to be patient and proud of myself regardless of how long something takes and to stop comparing my progress to others, it’s all part of life’s adventure.
Now, to change the subject, how did you end up joining the IG gaming community?
I’ve been good friends with Ali_Vaera (Dani) for about 6 years now from an old guild we were in together, I’ve had followed her on my social media ever since then and I always saw her awesome screenshots and sharing awesome/fun posts from the community and I just got really inspired to join in, and I’m so glad I did because I’ve met so many amazing people in the community!
Do you have a message for the community?
Thank you guys for welcoming me into the community with open arms since day one, and I’m grateful for all the sweet friends I’ve made from all over the world. You all are amazing people and all your talent through gaming and art inspire me more than you know. Even when I go inactive for irl stuff, I’m always lurking! Haha. Just don’t get caught up in drama, keep doing you and posting content you enjoy/love and the right people will gravitate your way, haters are always gonna hate.
And lastly, who are three members of the gaming community you would like to see as my guests?
Ooo it’s so hard to pick just three! There’s so many amazing people I’d love to see get interviewed, but I would love to see mr_casoria, mirialani , and moceratops as a guest for sure!
And with this our interview is over! Thank you so much for your time and for being such a kind soul and a great member of our community!
Of course! You’re the sweetest, thank you so much for having me, it was a pleasure and an honor being one of your guests. I look forward to seeing more interviews!
And thank you everyone for joining me for another interview! See you soon, when we’ll get to meet yet another wonderful member of our community!
