Hi! My name is Andrea, but everybody knows me as Pinky. I actually got that name in high school lol. I'm a wife and stay at home mom of 1, to my baby girl Niah shes 9. I wanted to be a Vet, but life happened, so I got more into gaming.
BGGC: Tell us your stream schedule if you have one/stream! As well as information about the games you stream and the focus of your channel and what systems you play on (Console/PC, etc.)
Pinky: I currently don't have a streaming schedule, because I home school my daughter. But in the summer I will be streaming everyday. I play a variety of games from The Sims 4, Call of Duty, GTA 5, Monster Hunter, I'm getting more into Fortnite, Pubg, Madden. The consoles I play on are everything lol! PC, Xbox, Ps4.
BGGC: Describe your favorite games that you grew up playing!
Pinky: Omg Tomb Raider was my favorite growing up! Also all Super Mario games, Star Fox.
BGGC: What does gaming mean to you and what is its significance in your life as a Black Woman or Woman of Color?
Pinky: What gaming means to me as a black woman, is to show that we are not just a statistic. That we are more than just being angry, and every thing else that the world think we are. And that we are out here in the gaming world not trying to hide under male gamers.
BGGC: What does motherhood mean to you and how do you balance being a mom with being a gamer? Are your children gamers too? If so, do you play together? How does this influence your relationship with each other? Are there games that you loved as a kid (or currently) that you want to pass on to your children and share with them?
Pinky: What motherhood means to me... is being that super hero mom. Showing my daughter that as a woman we can do anything. And giving her the world. But balancing it is kinda hard, because I home school her. So after school I’m like "okay I need to rest my mind."
Yes she is a little gamer lol, we play Fortnite, Minecraft, Pubg, Little Big Planet. Anything she sees me play she wants to play with me. I feel like when we’re playing it brings our bond more together. I’m outta mommy mode and in friend mode when we play.
I would love to see her stressed out at the mystery of Tomb Raider lol
