Ericka Bozeman is a YouTube personality, gamer and Twitch star, who rose to fame by appearing on the Smosh community YouTube channel, especially on the Smosh Games from 2017 to 2018, featuring a number of videos and shows created by Smosh -members. She has since left Smosh to focus on other interests.
Ericka Bozeman Wiki – Age, childhood and education
Ericka Bozeman was born on February 4, 1992 in Virginia, USA, of African American descent.
She grew up in her hometown with her siblings, a brother and a sister, but she has not shared any details about her parents and her educational background, though she claimed she was interested in maths and statistics.
Ericka had a rough start to her career; she worked as a bartender in Virginia and lived with a roommate who was a stripper. She even struggled to pay her rent, but she had ambitions to succeed, so she moved to Las Vegas where she continued as a bartender, but she didn’t like the new environment and she moved back to Virginia.
Once back, she started her Twitch channel and started playing video games. Gradually, she became more popular and on the advice of her roommate, she started showing skin in her videos, which attracted more people to her channel. After a while, however, she decided against such exposure and continued to build her fame based on her skills, not her looks, becoming more focused on her career in the video game industry. She began sending her bio to video game companies and YouTube enthusiasts for collaboration, and eventually got a call from Smosh and went to Los Angeles for an audition.
Rise to stardom
She went through two auditions before being hired by Smosh, and made her debut on the channel in 2017 in the video titled “BUCKET OF DOOM WITH FLITZ AND ANGRY”, and featured in a number of popular videos from then on, which boosted her popularity. In addition to her work with Smosh, Ericka continued to build her own fame through her Twitch channel, on which she has more than 40,000 loyal fans, best known for playing Apex Legends and other popular games. Nevertheless, her time with Smosh meant that Ericka has become a star, but still she decided to leave the group.
Why She Left Smosh and Later Career
Ericka was part of Smosh through 2017 and ’18 and featured in Smosh Games videos. During this time, she also became an international star, thanks to her humor, wit and personality in general. In 2018, Smosh stopped working for a while, because Defy Media, which was behind Smosh, went bankrupt and they needed a new sponsor. Before that happened, Ericka and several other members were without pay, though they continued to create new content.
This angered her; she began to feel unwelcome in the group and before Smosh found a new sponsor, who is now Mythical Entertainment, Ericka left the community.
Another reason was that she got tired of the content the group was creating and wanted new challenges outside of YouTube. As a result, she began learning about digital marketing and is now the social media manager for former adult film actress, webcam model, and now sports commentator and a social media personality, Mia Khalifa.

Personal life, dating, boyfriend
When it comes to her personal life, Ericka doesn’t like to talk about it; while she shared some of her struggles during her early career, she has stopped revealing her personal aspirations.

Their romance was unsettling and she said she had faced racism in her past relationships but has been single for about four years now.
