Kyedae Shymko has officially signed with LA-based org 100 Thieves as a content creator.
Despite playing FPS games ever since the Xbox 360 era, Kyedae immersed herself in the world of PC gaming and content creation through her boyfriend and FPS pro player, Tyson “TenZ” Ngo.
With TenZ making the switch to Valorant in his pro career in 2020, she took a liking to the Riot Games FPS and eventually began her content creation journey by playing matches with him.
Starting just in October 2020, Kyedae amassed a sizeable following of 172K subscribers on YouTube and 288K followers on Twitch in less than a year.
While she looks forward to the everyday grind of content creation, Kyedae voiced out her concerns for female gamers and the toxicity they have to face online.
“Especially for women in gaming, it’s so toxic,” said the casual gaming streamer. “People think that I’m trying to take it super competitively or they tell you to go back to the kitchen.”
As a rising female streamer in the scene, Kyedae is looking to build her female fanbase and create a space where women can feel empowered when they play games.
“For those who don’t have a voice, I will be your voice,” stated Kyedae. “If someone is bothering you, do not just stay quiet. Please speak out.”
