@Carlee_Asada, 27 – FUNDED

@Carlee_Asada is an artist by nature; she has been creating art for as long as she can remember. And, now, her tally is up to 1,000 pieces of art that she’s created for a range of diverse clients — that’s in addition to being published and honored at art shows. This BroadcastHER Grant winner is also a student, pursuing an Illustration degree and somehow finds time to stream in her “spare” time!

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

I want to become a well-known streamer who provides funny and good content as well as a successful emote artist that creates even better work than my clients say I do currently.

How will the BroadcastHER Grant from the 1,000 Dreams Fund help you reach your goals?

It’s going to help me improve my PC and get a tablet to improve my content and art commissions!

What does being the recipient of the BroadcastHER Grant mean to you?

It’s means SO MUCH! I am still shocked and honored to be chosen!❤️❤️

Women are underrepresented in gaming, broadcasting, and e-sports. What can we do to change this?

We can continue to motivate women in our industry to stay focused on their dreams and not let anyone make them think that just because they are a woman they are not welcome.

What are some of the challenges you have faced along the way?

Lots of trolls in my chat and games have tried to belittle me for being a woman and having “breasts.” Unfortunately, most female gamers or streamers who I know have also had issues like this.

What advice do you have for women who want to start broadcasting?

Stay confident and know that trolls have no play in your future!

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals?

I have a dream and I am a motivated person who really wants to achieve my goals to make that dream possible!
