Eefje "Sjokz" Depoortere Biography

A pentalingual (English, German, Dutch, Spanish, and French) broadcaster with a penchant for performance, Sjokz made her mark on the game industry as host of the League of Legends European Championship. Widely respected across the esports world for her elevated yet authentic brand image, Sjokz is known as a role model and a champion for other women in gaming. Funny and hardworking, stylish yet humble, Sjokz has over 1.5 million global fans on social media and is considered to be one of the most distinguished talents in all of esports.

Depoortere was formerly a competitive Unreal Tournament '99 player and competed in several LANs and won several ClanBase EuroCups with the Belgian national team. The name "Sjokz" is a phonetic spelling of "shocks" in Flemish, and derives from her use of the Shock Rifle in Unreal Tournament.

Depoortere began working as a freelance journalist producing esports-related content for SK Gaming and ESFi World. She completed her Master's degree in history and journalism and a teaching degree from Ghent University.

Depoortere was crowned as the winner of the 2009 Aardbeienprinses van Beervelde pageant and was the third-place finalist in the 2011 Miss Style Belgium pageant.

It was due to esports journalist Travis Gafford's YouTube show "Whose League is it Anyway?" that Depoortere became known in the community. Due to her popularity on WLIA she was later hired to be the host of the European League of Legends Championship Series. She has often thanked Gafford for helping her establish herself in esports. Depoortere is also known for the YouTube show "Summoner Recap" on the SK Gaming's YouTube channel, which was one of the first "League of Legends" shows. In 2013, Depoortere hosted the League of Legends World Finals in Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. She also hosted the 2015 World Championship, which took place in Europe and again in 2019, also in Europe. Depoortere won the "Best Esports Host" award at both the The Game Awards 2018 and The Game Awards 2019.
