I joined Zelda Universe again for a panel, this time to go over the Zelda timeline!
Presented a panel at PAX East 2021 with the Zelda Universe team.
I was invited to be a guest on the official Loot Crate page for their “Edu-Crated” segment.
As a guest host, I wrote 20 trivia questions based on the popular anime and manga, Jujutsu Kaisen, and tested the knowledge of the Loot Crate community managers.
This event was live streamed on both Facebook and YouTube where the audiences also got to participate and chat with the streamers.
To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the video game series, Metroid, the streaming platform Twitch selected clips from gamers who had recently been playing games from the series to feature on their social media profiles.
One of my clips from my Metroid: Samus Returns playthrough was selected to be included in the short video celebrating the milestone for the series.
During the online Crunchyroll Expo event in 2020, I was proud to represent Anime for Humanity in a panel of guests to talk about the importance of mental health, and how anime, manga, and cosplay can be not only a hobby, but a helpful tool in people’s mental health recovery.
Two of the guests on the panel were family psychologists, who gave advice on how to approach talking to your therapist about using anime in your treatment.
Invited to speak in behalf of Anime for Humanity on the podcast Fandom Femmes, where we discussed mental health within the anime fan base.
Invited as a guest speaker representing Anime for Humanity on the podcast, Small and Gutsy.
This podcast focuses on smaller non-profit organizations, and the impact they are making within their community.
Streaming video games on Twitch is not only a hobby, but has become a way for me to give back to communities that are doing great things, and really mean a lot to me.
In April of 2021, I selected the non-profit, Magic Wheelchair, to fundraise for. Magic Wheelchair is a non-profit that builds out of this world costumes and cosplays for children in wheelchairs, at no cost to the families.
I had the pleasure of meeting some of their team around 2019 while working a booth for Anime for Humanity, and got to see a cosplay reveal happen. I really admire the amount of work the staff and their partners put in to making these costumes is, and the joy on the kid’s and their family’s faces is priceless.
During the fundraiser, I set an initial goal of $1,000 and ended up raising a total of $1,560 over the course of 2 weeks.
For the third year running, I participated in the Anime for Humanity NewGame+ end of year fundraising campaign.
This year however, I decided to host a two week long event on my own channel, instead of the usual guest spot on the Anime for Humanity channel. Being new to hosting a charity event on my own, I set a reasonable goal of $150 to contribute the the overall NewGame+ goal through Tiltify, and met that within the first stream.
With the $150 goal met so quickly, I came up with new milestones and incentives to fill the remainder of the event, and ended up raising a total of $1,000!
NewGame+ Fundraising Campaign 2019
During the 2018 NewGame+ campaign, my role was more of a designer and supporting role. For 2019, my duties grew to not only branding the campaign and creating the promo graphics, but organizing between the teams involved and those that joined to assist with the fundraising.
I helped schedule streamers for the kickoff and streams throughout the month, while also participating myself, and made sure that everyone who was either going to be on the Anime for Humanity channel or their own channel had the proper graphics and one-sheet of information to say about NewGame+ campaign and how it helps AFH and their goals.
