Pokimane reveals why she moved to a new apartment in LA
Twitch star Pokimane has revealed why she packed up and moved to another apartment in Los Angeles, citing several key reasons why her old notebook didn’t match her new apartment.
Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is the most-followed streamer on Twitch, and as such, it only makes sense that her eight million fans would take an interest in her daily life.
Recently, the influencer shared her experience of moving into her new apartment with her viewers.
Although she moved from a house shared with her roommates to a solo apartment nearly a year ago, she said a few factors led her to seek alternative accommodation instead of renewing her lease.

For one thing, she claimed her old streaming room didn’t have enough natural light, which she says was a big problem for her circadian rhythm and overall mental health.
She was also not a big fan of her balcony, which looked directly out onto the street, giving her an unwanted vibe during her moments of meditation or relaxation that she preferred to have without car horns and traffic noise.

“My lease had come to an end and I fully intended to stay in my old place because I really liked it and it was fine,” she explained. “Actually, it was great. Internet was awesome. I liked the amount of space.
“There was no way to set up my streaming setup to have natural lighting,” she added. “And when I’m sitting in a gray room – no sunlight, no artificial lights and I’m streaming for ten hours – and I start at 11 a.m., and when I’m done, there’s no sunlight, I feel like it was messing up my circadian rhythm. Just my head. I think natural sunlight is really important.

Fortunately, Pokimane seems delighted with her new apartment and says she feels “safe and happy” in the new place with her two cats, Mimi and Beau.
