@dancermeme, 24 – Funded

dancermeme (she/her) has been streaming for about seven years, but she initially developed her passion for dance after discovering Just Dance. It was through Just Dance that this BroadcastHER Grant winner also developed an interest in learning languages, which is what she is currently specializing in! She encourages her community to speak Portuguese and French in her chat, so she can practice!

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

Try and involve them in gaming events with a friendly, equal, and inviting environment.

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

My biggest challenge was trying to stay up to date with content while dealing with an almost dreadful hurricane.

Be you. There is nothing more beautiful than being yourself and showing the world what you’re made of and passionate about.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals? 

I always try to build a better relationship with myself before anything else. Once you love yourself, everything else comes around at its destined time.
