1,000 Dreams Fund recently took Las Vegas by storm for a THIRD time this year for our BroadcastHER Academy Trip at the HyperX Arena — and it was just as fantastic as ever.

(Check out our first 2023 trip here and our second 2023 trip here.)

This time around, we brought three of our 2023 BroadcastHER Academy Fellows, including DazedDreams, torioyo, and nebbiiee.

We are in our FIFTH year of the BroadcastHER Academy Esports Fellowship program for women, powered by Allied Gaming & Entertainment and HyperX. And, we are continually so honored and thrilled to help women who want to work in esports and gaming level up their careers and reach their goals.

Here’s a look at the day’s events from our trip on December 1, 2023. It was a nonstop and game-changing time of behind-the-scenes access and experiences for our Fellows!

This time out, we added something NEW to the schedule and teamed up with 5GRV streamers, including GloZell, Leesh_Capeesh, BarefootTasha, DefinedByKy, Mari Takahashi, and razlol, for a friendly challenge of esports skills in their segment: “We Founded an Esports Team”. (Check out the VOD coverage here!)

5GRV’s BarefootTasha, LeeshCapeesh, DefinedByKy, and Glozell joined our Fellows at the HyperX Arena.

5GRV consists of inspiring women in the gaming and creation space —  and they served as mentors to our Fellows during our time in Vegas!

In addition to the 5GRV fun, our Fellows took a tour of the HyperX Arena.

In a way this experience is really affirming that I am doing the right thing and that someone sees that I’m working hard and sees my progress and that’s just a really cool  experience to have people in the esports industry, in the field, recognize that and say that you’re doing good, you’re on the right path.” – nebbiiee, BroadcastHER Academy Fellow

We also had a special mentor session with Allied Gaming & Entertainment Chief Operating Officer Mark Green and Dodie Nance, Vice President of HR.

Another big hands-on learning part of the experience takes place when our Fellows are matched with Allied Gaming & Entertainment team members, based on their dreams and career interests, to shadow them.

Our Fellows are then invited to assist with the production of a tournament, including observing game play as well as competing and casting.

As always, 1,000 Dreams Fund is always thrilled to take the stage in the evening in front of a hyped-up crowd to interview and celebrate the BroadcastHER program during a live-streamed event.

Our founder, Christie Garton, presents each of our Fellows with their big check for an on-stage celebration moment!
