Steve Mini from the 6ix is a part-time undergraduate living with a disability. He studies English literature at the University Of Toronto, a student of St. Michael’s College. He claims that some day, he’ll graduate, despite his disability. He hears voices in his head and is diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia. He thought for the longest time that someone was somehow trolling him telepathically, though he is not sure how; he was subsequently hospitalized several times and is now medicated for hearing voices.

Steve also plays online multiplayer video games. In esports, he obtained the title of “High Warlord” in World Of Warcraft, by obtaining the highest rank in the game, in player-vs-player, on his Warlock. He now plays League Of Legends sometimes, only casually and at a low rank, and refuses to climb the ladder (to view his champion selections and win-rates, click the following link: NA op.gg: SteveMini). He also watches professional video game matches, including the ASL and GSL of Starcraft 1 and 2.

Steve often pursues passion projects. For example, he was the Founder of the Toronto Poetry Club which grew on meetup.com to 3,000+ members. He also helped his father reconstruct a historical c.1929 abandoned train station, which his father purchased and developed into a restaurant.

Steve is an avid Toronto sports fan; he watches the Toronto Maple Leafs, Blue Jays and Raptors.

Steve Mini from the 6ix lives off a humble disability pension, ODSP, which places him below the poverty line in Toronto, Canada. He’s allowed to raise an extra 10,000$ CDN per year in donations before being penalized. He claims that donations would go towards him purchasing more food, and that even 5 or 6$ can change his meal plan for a day or two. Other costs include getting a new computer every few years, upgrading his nikon camera and lenses when he can, and purchasing loose-leaf white-tea when he can afford it – otherwise he opts for Lipton green-tea, which he claims he can get at about 6 cents per tea-bag.
