@oCheez__, 18 – FUNDED

British streamer @oCheez__ loves streaming and playing Minecraft — and interacting with others! Here’s what else this BroadcastHER Student Scholarship winner has to say!

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

I want to be able to provide content to make people feel welcome and safe.

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

It will allow me to have more and better-quality streams!

What does being the recipient of the BroadcastHER Student Scholarship mean to you?

It allows me to follow my dreams! I never thought I’d be able to do this!

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

We need to show everyone that we don’t just have followers because we are women and people ‘simp.’ We have the followers because we are just as good, if not better as every other male streamer.

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

I’ve been told that I’m overweight and only have some followers because I’m a woman.

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

Keep your head and up ignore hate. This is your dream, live it!

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals?

I make sure that I do what I love!
