As a child, Rikki grew up with various consoles and games. Her main games were Pokemon and Sims. As she started her content creating business, games took a beat seat in order to bring awareness to disability and accessibility. But since December 2017, Rikki has been able to bring games back into her life by incorporating it into her content creating business. At NCSD, Rikki will talk about her journey as not only a gamer, but a deaf gamer. She will cover what it’s like being one of the few deaf people on Twitch, and how accessible the platform and games themselves are.
