Sweet Anita is a Twitch streamer, YouTube star, and gamer from the UK. She is known online for openly talking about how she suffers from Tourette’s Syndrome. Though she gets some backlash from doing so, a lot of people support her endeavors. She has an estimated net worth of $500,000 as of 2022.
Anita was nurtured by a single mother in East Anglia before relocating to Southwest England. Her real name is still a mystery. She sought medical help when she was 13 years old, but the doctor ignored her complaints, dismissing her as an attention seeker.
It was believed that it was only a phase, and she would later grow out of it. But a decade later, she attempted again to receive a diagnosis. After a week of examinations, she was officially diagnosed with Tourette’s Syndrome with coprolalia.
She struggled with the disease throughout her youth, and due to her tics, she was only able to attend proper school for a year. The syndrome does not have a permanent cure. Her symptoms are relieved only by cognitive behavioral therapy and specialized medicine.
In 2018, Anita started streaming on Twitch. Her early feeds were mostly gaming-related. She focused on the multiplayer shooting game Overwatch. After videos of her profanity-laced outbursts, which were triggered by her tics, went online, she caught the attention of many.
Sweet Anita was nominated for her first big recognition, “Twitch Streamer of the Year,” at the 11th Shorty Awards on May 5, 2019. In just two years, she’s gained a lot of traction on the platform. The gamer was awarded a Twitch partnership, which increased her earning opportunities.
She is regarded as one of the most influential figures in the current gaming landscape due to her unique condition. In 2022, she has amassed 1.8 million followers on her channel.
Although the platform is supportive of Anita’s efforts, not all of the attention she has received has been beneficial. She has been accused of media manipulation, and her tics have been criticized by users on social media sites.
Some people also urged that she be removed from the service after she made racist remarks during her live streams. In her defense, Anita stated that she was unable to control her neurotic tics and that she would not allow them to be censored.
She doesn’t take personally the accusations relating to her condition. And after years of educating people about her disability and telling her experiences, she is confident that there are more people that believe her than those that still have doubts.
Anita works as an animal rehabilitator when she’s not streaming. She has taken care of rabbits, chinchillas, and rats. She also has her own business, selling glass that she collects along the coast.
As for her relationship status, the content creator is currently single. There’s no report of her having a boyfriend. Sweet Anita is only focused on taking care of her mother and spreading her message that even with Tourette’s, anyone can adapt to live a successful life.
