Sasha Staggs was born in Texas USA, on 5 July 1994 so under the zodiac sign of Cancer and holding American nationality – better known online as Vixella, she is popular for her YouTube channel on which she mostly uploads videos related to “The Sims” video game.
Early life and education
Vixella is quite secretive when it comes to her early life, as she hasn’t shared many details about this period of her life with her fans. She grew up playing video games, and fell in love with “The Sims” the moment she tried it – some of the boys from her class were playing the game as well, while other girls were not into video games at all, which led Vixella to spend most of her time with the boys from her class rather than with the girls.

Her interest in games continued throughout the four years she spent in high school, as she started playing “Minecraft” and enjoyed that video game as well – after she matriculated, she focused on her career online rather than to pursue a college degree.
Vixella hasn’t talked about her parents as she wants to keep them away from the media’s attention – her mother and father aren’t very proud of her career online anyway, but they’ve come to terms with it. Vixella hasn’t mentioned having any siblings, which is why most of her fans believe her to be an only child.
Career of a YouTuber
Vixella’s career began when she launched her YouTube channel under the name “Fancy Simmer” on 23 December 2013 – there are currently more than 1.1 million people subscribed to her channel, which also counts nearly 210 million views of all her videos combined. She uploaded the first video on Christmas Eve in 2013, entitled “The Sims 3: Create A Sim | Christmas Inspired”. She was mostly uploading “Sims 3” content until “Sims 4” was released, and she then focused on uploading “Sims 4” guide videos from August 2014.
On 27 March 2015 she discarded Fancy Simmer, and uploaded a video called “RIP Fancy Simmer” in which she told her fans that she was working on changing her online name. On 1 April 2015, she uploaded a video called “Fancy Simmer is Vixella”, explaining that she had chosen Vixella as her new online name.
While she is mostly focused on uploading “The Sims” gameplays, her second most favorite video game is “Minecraft”, and she can be found in the game under the username “Vixella” – she has uploaded numerous videos teaching people how to craft things in “Minecraft”, and is well-respected in the Minecraft community.
She also enjoys playing games such as “Roblox” and “Final Fantasy”.
What is “Minecraft”?
Minecraft was created in 2011 by a Swedish game developer Markus Persson, and was released by Mojang. The main goal in the game when it was released for the first time was to survive in the world in which zombies attack you at night. Players get to build houses, tools, and weapons from blocks in this 3D generated world while they also get to explore to find the resources needed for crafting different things.

Although the main game mode was survival in the past meaning that you have to find all the resources on your own and fight the zombies, now it has a creative mode in which you can use all the blocks you want without having to make them first, and you can in that way make structures and be creative with them.
Some people are known to have created their entire cities in Minecraft creative mode, while another YouTuber has recently made a fully functional computer using Redstone (an item in Minecraft).
Ever since it was officially released, Minecraft has been a very popular game, and has won numerous awards and accolades over the years. There is Minecraft merchandise being sold on the internet, numerous YouTube channels and websites show people how to make things and how to play the game, and there are also events called MineCons which are organized all over the world. Judging by the statistics from May 2019, the game has sold more than 176 million copies, and therefore currently holds the title of the best-selling video game of all times.
In September 2014, Microsoft bought Mojang and the Minecraft video game for $2.5 billion, and soon afterwards released the “Minecraft: Story Mode” version of the game.
Love life and relationships
Vixella is very secretive when it comes to her love life, as she hasn’t shared any details regarding her past and present relationships with her fans. Although she hasn’t talked about it herself, Vixella’s fans have allegedly seen her walking hand in hand with a boy in the streets –apparently a popular YouTuber as well, who uploads vlogging videos onto his channel on a daily basis.
It is rumored that their relationship began in the summer of 2018, but Vixella hasn’t commented on this. Judging by her social media accounts, she currently appears to be single, hasn’t married, and doesn’t have any kids.
Hobbies and other interests
Vixella enjoys traveling, and can often be seen attending GameCons organized across the country. She is very fond of cosplaying, and attends these events as well if she has the time. She loves spending her free time with her girlfriends, but is not much of a party girl as she prefers peace and quiet rather than crowded and loud places. Good food is an attraction, particularly in fancy restaurants – she also enjoys sitting in nature close to rivers and streams.
She loves to pose, and she had the dream of becoming a model, however, she hasn’t been given a chance to try and make a career in modelling yet. Vixella is a big lover of animals and has a Huskie pet dog named Yuna.
In August 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Texas and caused a huge amount of damage, and killed around 40 people. Although Vixella and her home were far from the hurricane, her mother and grandparents’ houses were destroyed, leading Vixella to ask her fans to help all the victims of the hurricane. She launched a GoFundMe campaign, which raised more than $9,000 to help the victims.
