  1. Very good video Zoenova is very cool and entertaining person and very respectful it is very hard to be female streamer and at that one who games as well very much respect for her continuing with streaming and hope many others take her advice and do what you want and don’t let people who hate what you believe in or have interest in doing like streaming/gaming. I have definitely heard it all as a gamer myself disrespect that females get in game chat and it is very much there, I’m glad she is doing it and I hope others in her situation do as well no matter what anyone says to you. Thank you.
