@MeganLenius, 26 – Funded

Musician MeganLenius (she/her) plays a variety of music on her stream — anything from Janis Joplin to P!NK — and we have a feeling you’ll love it all. This BroadcastHER Grant winner knows how powerful music can be as a source of comfort and healing and is passionate about sharing it with her community.

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

I want to share my music with the world and be a source of comfort during life’s tough times, just like music has been for me.

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

It’s is going to help me release more music.

What does being a recipient mean to you?

It means so much to be able to not only fundraise for 1DF, but also be a recipient. A grant like this is going to allow me to release more music that I wouldn’t be able to do. I’m so grateful to BroadcastHER for believing in me!

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

We have to do everything we can to spotlight women voices.

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

One of the significant challenges I’ve faced is the unexpected loss of my sibling. In those difficult moments, music is my refuge, offering solace and providing a space where I can find comfort and healing.

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

Don’t take criticism from someone you wouldn’t ask for advice from.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals? 

I stay motivated and focused on my goals by continuously striving for improvement, even in the smallest aspects of my journey.
