SF Salon | Women in Gaming

 

This past Monday - July 10th, 2016 - I got the chance to speak at Google for the first ever SF See Jane Salon about Women in Gaming.

The Geena Davis Institute is doing great work when it comes to their partnership with Google!

After a rousing speech by Geena Davis, we jumped right into the panel portion of the event. But I wasn't alone! I was joined by some amazing women in this industry whose work I admired long before I got to meet them in person.

It's rare that I get to be so open about my experiences as a woman of color on a very public platform like Twitch. It was very refreshing to be part of such an honest dialogue. Successes, triumphs and struggles ... we discussed it all! It was both humbling and inspiring.

Below is a video about I got involved in gaming & what led to me to actively pursue streaming:

 

My personal origin story. (Video filmed by @dianamoon.)


I have some folks that I need to acknowledge because no event can be made possible without the dedicated minds behind it!

First off I have to thank to Anita Sarkeesian for the invite. This was an extraordinary opportunity, thank you for considering me for this! Special thanks to Madeline Di Nonno, Elizabeth Kilpatrick and Jazmin Borad for all of your help.

I also have to show my appreciation to both Google and the Geena Davis Institute, thank you for your hospitality! To the fantastic women and fellow panelists who sat alongside me - Jane Ng, Aleissia Laidacker, Carolyn Petit and Lisa Chen - thank you for sharing your stories.

Lastly ... to my supportive friends, the generous members and the awesome souls who filled up the audience. Your presence meant so much! I got to meet a lot of new faces once everything wrapped so I wanted to extend my gratitude for being so warm and welcoming!

Humble Bundle Partner!

 

This has been in the works since August of last year when I initially applied so I'm very excited to finally announce that I'm officially a Humble Bundle Partner!

 

Click the image above to pay what you want for this bundle! Offer ends on July 3rd, 2017.

 

There are quite a few ways to give back to the stream aside from spending time in chat, donating and RTing when I go live.

Now that I'm a Humble Bundle partner, you can support both my streaming efforts while giving to charity at the same time. How awesome is that?

I'm very grateful for this opportunity. I've always admired the work that Humble Bundle does so I'm super happy about this new development for the channel.

E3 2017 | Recap

 

I had the privilege to attend this year's E3 held at the LA Convention Center for the second year in a row. This year was open to the public so that meant a lot more crowds and foot traffic.

But good news! For once I wasn't working at a booth so I had the opportunity to explore the floor, have meetings, look at my leisure and drool over all of the new games that will be gracing my PS4 and the stream soon.

I also got the chance to support my friends and their title releases as well. I'm so proud of everyone, all the content I saw at various pressers as well as the show floor looked amazing! I absolutely cannot wait to get my hands on some of these shiny new titles.

Below are just some of the adventures that my friends & I had.

 


 

Despite spending five nights in LA I still wasn't able to see everyone!

Below is a slight photo dump from my feed and some candid shots my friends took.
