Alia Marie Shelesh was born on October 22, 1992, to a Greek father and a Turkish mother in Liverpool, England, United Kingdom. She has two younger brothers and one younger sister. She could speak Arabic fluently when she was younger. Her family moved to Phoenix, Arizona, in the United States when she was six years old. When she was eight years old, her dad bought Alia and her brother a PS1. Lia revealed that she never had a positive relationship with her dad.
Alia graduated High School early, got a head-start in College, and studied pharmacy and Nursing. She later dropped out of college early. Alia started working in Hollister, where she was paid minimum wage. She quit after being agitated by her rude manager. She first met Sausage on YouTube, later meeting him at Comic-Con in person.
Her username, SSSniperWolf, comes from Sniper Wolf, is one of the main antagonists and bosses of Metal Gear Solid. It was her favorite game as a kid too. However, Alia claims that the ‘SS’ in her name does not mean anything.
Alia originally started her YouTube career in early 2011 on a channel called sexysexysniper, making short vlogs. The channel accumulated 50,000 subscribers until two years later. However, she made a new channel on January 19, 2013, and deleted the old one around mid-2013, most likely due to the name. Since 2017, most of the videos that she uploads are reactions and TikTok videos, along with occasional gaming and challenges. From 2020 onwards, she regularly made it to the Trending Page, gaining her intense popularity.
Alia is also known to appear in Dhar Mann’s videos as herself. In the videos, she is the idol of Sam/Psycho Mantis (played by Sofia Chicorelli Serna), a girl who wants to be a gamer just like her, despite her sexist mother not allowing her. However, after Alia gives her a PS5, she becomes a professional gamer and earns a lot of fame and money, and her mother discards her sexist beliefs. This in itself brings more issues, such as a bully targeting her due to her fame, but she earns his friendship by paying for his rent and car. “Sam” and SSSniperWolf appear in more miscellaneous videos, though with minor roles.
