We’ve selected our next Dream Stream podcast host — and we couldn’t be more excited!

Please meet Nikki A.K.A. @camillapanda, a Twitch streamer who focuses on fundraising for nonprofits that empower diverse people to follow their dreams and support kids. She’s also a hybrid of both color commentating and play-by-play in esports, specifically for Valorant — and a Fall 2020 BroadcastHER Grant winner and 2022 JBL Quantum Grant winner.

“I am so excited to be chosen for this opportunity,” she said. “The Dream Stream has empowered other broadcasters with knowledge and has allowed many voices in the gaming and esports space to be heard. I cannot wait to help continue that this year while supporting an incredible nonprofit that has done a lot of good in gaming and beyond.”

Besides having a degree in interactive multimedia, @camillapanda has a certification in nonprofit management. So when she’s not streaming, she is a passionate advocate for equitable STEM education and teaches local students as a mentor on two multi-award winning FIRST Robotics Competition teams while traveling the United States as a play-by-play commentator and as a Master of Ceremonies. 

She’s also a member of Team Kitty, an all-women’s broadcasting team, and the 1,000 Dreams Fund Dream Team. 

Yay @camillapanda! 

We’re so excited for what’s ahead this year on Dream Stream!

Dream Stream (formerly BroadcastHER LIVE!) is our monthly podcast on the 1,000 Dreams Fund Twitch channel. Each month, the topics and guests change, but one thing remains the same: All shows aim to empower and help the women and folks we serve achieve their goals and dreams across a variety of fields – especially in gaming, esports, and content creation.

We’ve had such fun with prior hosts, including @MiladyConfetti, @LuxieGames, @breadwitchery, and @CallMeAzia, and we have so much incredible content in store for you this year!

If you’re curious about what we look for in a host, here are some qualities we celebrate:

  • Commitment to empowering women in broadcasting
  • Energy and passion
  • Comfortable in front of the camera
  • Background in journalism or hosting/podcasting experience preferred
  • Ability to commit to a one-hour LIVE show each month 
  • Passion and familiarity with 1DF’s BroadcastHER initiative!

Interested? We’ll be on the lookout again in 2024. Stay tuned!
