@WildSpice, 34 – FUNDED

Cosplayer and photographer @WildSpice is also on the hype train for our BroadcastHER Dream Team, a team that serves as leaders for women and women-aligned folks in esports, gaming, broadcasting, and beyond. Here’s what else this BroadcastHER Grant winner had to say.

What is your dream as a digital broadcaster?

My dream is to entertain, have fun, and be someone people can feel hype from!

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

I will be able to expand my content creation and improve my setup, which will help me stream more and create more fun, hype content for the community! I can also get more creative.

What does being a recipient mean to you?

It means a lot; I have been supporting the cause for the last two years to help people go for their dreams and I feel so happy to be among the grant recipients!

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

Keep doing what 1DF is doing! Expand more into the space so there is more visibility and so the voice of women can also expand in the space!

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

I have been told “you can’t” — because doing anything in the gaming and content creation space is not considered a “real thing to do.”

You can do what you want to do to support yourself and share your talents. Work toward your dreams.

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

Do it! Take that leap — and try it out. You don’t know if this is your calling until you try it. You can also meet amazing people in the space, so definitely get involved and go for it.

How do you stay motivated and focused on your goals?

My community helps me stay focused and motivated, as do other content creators and people from my full-time job. Seeing other people going for their dreams is an inspiration, as well!
