Mentor: Caliverse


Hi my name is Bree, and I am a broadcaster on twitch known as Caliverse. I have had a passion for gaming ever since the Sega Genesis Nomad; playing Sonic, Mortal Kombat with my dad, and Joust. Free internet points to anyone that knows what Joust is. My passion grew throughout my childhood, hoping from console to console, until I landed on X-Box 360 playing Halo 2. I joined a clan that encouraged community values, and my passion for gaming and people reached a new height. This is when I found out about youtube and started making gaming content to share with others. A couple of years later, a friend introduced twitch to me, where I streamed casually for a period of time.

Eventually, I realized how much of a positive impact the streaming community was having on me and my passion, and that was when I moved to full time streaming. I have been a partnered streamer now for 2 years, and the relationships I have made with both the viewers and other creators in the community have kept me motivated through the good and the bad. Knowing that there was potentially somebody counting on me to stream and keep them company has helped me to push through some difficult days.

Full disclosure, It’s not always easy being a full time streamer; You give up a lot of your social life and you can spend long hours developing your brand and your community, but with time you will find a healthy balance that works for you. I have personally overcome a lot of obstacles throughout my time streaming, and I plan to share with you the experience I have gained from this journey. It can be a difficult road to get started, but it is very rewarding.
