You recently have been streaming content with Jazzyguns, egoBlack, Poiised, Rico the Giant and Dwayne Kyng, and you’re always championing and collaborating with Black Creators on your platform. Can you tell us why this philosophy of “group growth” is so important to you?
AyChristene: “It is super important to me to bring together and collaborate with other Black gaming creators because this is the one group of the YouTube community that has been largely underrepresented in regards to gaming. When you look at all the genres of gaming, there normally isn’t a Black face, and if there is, it’s probably just one.
Especially after all the events that happened in the U.S.A. last year, it is now more important than ever for us to come together and be the ones that change the face of gaming by collaborating with each other and lifting each other up.
My daughter already loves watching video games on our TV. It is important for Black gamers to see Black gamers. I want to see my daughter grow up seeing others that look like her on YouTube and on TV.”
