We just recently returned from our FIRST visit of the year to the HyperX Arena in Las Vegas with a few of our 2023 BroadcastHER Academy Fellows, including @ResleyGG, @simplyheidi, and @Candi.

This is our FIFTH year of the BroadcastHER Academy Esports Fellowship program, powered by Allied Entertainment & Gaming and HyperX, which specifically helps women who want to work in esports and gaming level up their careers and reach their goals.
