@HobiDesune, 18 – FUNDED

It’s not hard to pick up on HobiDesune’s passion for digital broadcasting, as the BroadcastHER Grant recipient is pursuing a future full-time career in this space. And, in spite of some challenges along the way, she stays motivated by focusing on the positive — and, for her, that’s all about remembering the people who believe in her and truly enjoy watching her stream.

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

My dream is to make digital broadcasting my full-time job because I enjoy it.

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

It will allow me to increase my stream quality! Then, possibly more viewers will enjoy my stream more.

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

It means I have the capabilities to fulfill my dreams — and others also believe that, too.

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

We can change this by encouraging other women to voice their opinion and become more active in the gaming, broadcasting, and e-sports community.

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

Some challenges I have faced include not having the equipment to have a quality stream as well as gender inequality.

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

My advice is to power through the hate and misogynistic comments that occasionally occur in the chat.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals?

I stay motivated by remembering those who truly enjoy watching my stream and want only the best for me and my stream.
