Not only has she made a name for herself as a professional gamer but she is also a pioneer for women in this male-dominated industry.

The tournament brought in 135,806 unique viewers, 166,342 live views, and 7,235 concurrent viewers. The tournament raised over $5,000 to charities including FredHutch and Children’s Miracle Network. As the host, creator, and director of the PUBG tournament, the gaming star has always felt especially passionate about encouraging and empowering women to embrace their love for gaming despite the stereotypes against females in the space.
