@SilentAcoustic – Funded

It’s all about a good story for @SilentAcoustic who plays a lot of Sims — but really loves any story-base or story-choice games. Here’s more about this BroadcastHER Grant winner’s own story.

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

My dream is to grow my community and work with my dream companies like Electronic Arts and Nike. I want to grow my brand enough to where I’m financially stable because of it.

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

It will help me with equipment upgrades, which helps me improve my streaming and video content.

What does being a recipient mean to you?

I’m honored more than anything to be helped like this. I’m extremely grateful and, when I’m in a better position, I want to be able to pay it forward.

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

Having more support for women in these areas and, of course, more opportunities will help.

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

Financial worries and getting support and opportunities all have been hard for me… hopefully, the harder I work, I’ll be able to beat some of these issues.

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

Start wherever you are. Let your community find you, and always be yourself.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals? 

I try to stay consistent but still take breaks when I’m tired. Burnout is real if you try too hard — and having fun and enjoying what I do keeps me motivated to keep going. Content-creating can be a lonely space, at times, and I question myself often — but I push to keep going because I love it.
