On Friday, March 15, our first four BroadcastHER Academy Challenge winners, including @MiladyConfetti, @RaineShadow, @ObeWon, and @RadPuppy, jetted off to the HyperX Esports Arena Las Vegas for a very special opportunity in partnership with HARMAN, Allied Esports, and HyperX. As part of their prize, they got a behind-the-scenes look at the gaming industry.

While at the arena, they worked side-by-side with arena production and executive teams to execute the venue’s popular Friday Frags Fortnite tournament that happens each week. During the tournament, for icing on an already awesome cake, the 1,000 Dreams Fund and our girls were the special on-stage guests.

“This past weekend’s trip to the HyperX Esports Arena was a great experience to learn more about the business aspect of e-sports and the gaming industry while developing skills such as networking, casting, and production as well as gaining mentorship from partners including Harman and HyperX,” @MiladyConfetti shared.

Indeed, this was such a great chance for these girl gamers, who are aiming for full-time careers either in front of or behind the camera, to get in on the action while meeting leaders in the e-sports industry — including the host of the evening, Stella Chuu, a popular streamer and cosplayer

“Getting to go to the HyperX Arena in Las Vegas was such a great honor,” said @RaineShadow “I loved getting to tour the HyperX Arena; it was such an amazing opportunity to see their day-to-day operations and talk with employees along with people from Harman. I’m so glad I got to be part of this and am so thankful for 1000 Dreams Fund for giving me this opportunity!”
