@Uzi89, 30 – FUNDED

@Uzi89 spent four years as a Military Police in the United States Air Force. A disabled veteran, this BroadcastHER Grant winner now streams full-time, mainly playing PUBG. She also loves open world RPGs.

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

I want to help connect veterans with each other.

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

The grant will allow me to purchase hardware upgrades for my PC and further improve my stream.

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

It is an honor being selected amongst such strong, capable women.

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

We have to continue supporting women. Visibility is important to create a new norm for women being present in esports.

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

I have experienced sexism frequently — both in the military and in gaming.

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

Be yourself, and don’t tolerate any negativity. The right people will respect the boundaries you set for yourself online.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals?

I look to other women gamers, such as Lil Lexi and Jenna Marbles, to continue working towards growing my brand and improving.
