@GlamZaddy, 31 – FUNDED

Proud owner of Gamer Glam Cosmetics, @GlamZaddy creates makeup tutorials and looks with the products and love to see others use the products, as well! In addition to makeup, this BroadcastHER Grant winner also happens to love chocolate chip frappes, Mike and Ikes, and pasta.

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

I want to create a fun and safe space for gamers to play in makeup.

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

I want to go full force on highlighting makeup-teaching streams for those who aren’t comfortable picking up a brush.

What does being a recipient mean to you?

For years, I’ve been a fan of BroadcastHER’s vision. You helped me create a motive for my company. (THANK YOU!)

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

We can support their dreams and give them opportunities to grow.

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

One of the biggest challenges I faced was creating content around something I really loved: Makeup. I received a lot of backlash, due to people not understanding the correlation between gaming and makeup.

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

Never be afraid to be yourself. People will always fall for your charm and personality.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals?

I stay motivated by having the support of my family and friends who are ALWAYS cheering for me.
