Pokimane

A gamer of some renown, this Canadian Morrocan has definitely had a better 2020 than most. If you are not familiar with her then you should check her out especially if you are a fan of  League of Legends and Fortnite. 

 

Zelda Williams

The daughter of the late great Robin Williams, Zelda is awesome through and through. Not only is she named after the legendary princess of Nintendo fame, she is more than willing to dress up as her favourite Nintendo characters, play the games and even lend her voice to a few nerd classics suck as Legend of Korra. Plus she was bragging about her Lord Of The Rigs Extended Marathon and that is just something I think many of us can relate too.

Darcie Little Badger

Further, as a Lipan Apache, she develops her stories with Apache characters and themes.

At the same time, some of her works feature characters who reconfirm the presence and importance of LGBTQ+ community-members. Marvel Comics even brought her onboard to help write for Dani Moonstar, a fictional Northern Cheyenne superheroine. 

 

Jessie Flower

Jessie is the original voice of Toph Beifong, not only that but she is a graduate of Yale but I am sure you are all more concerned with the Avatar stuff. Since her time working on the show Jessie has very much stayed with the fandom and we all love her for it.

DingleDerper

The daughter of writer Elizabeth Washburn, Dinglederper has quite the following on twitch and seems to get by on a mix of her looks, charm, lovable derpiness and just being fun. Plus she loves dogs, so who cannot say that this women is awesome!

Amandla Stenberg

Though many of may recognize her as Rue in The Hunger Games, this talented actor keeps herself busy with several side projects. One of which is her own comic book entitled NIOBE: She Is Life. This is a push by the young creator to add a bit of diversity into the world.

YAYA HAN

The OG Queen of Cosplay who is still churning out great pieces. Yaya Han is untouchable and also absolutely lovely to interview. There are many who covert her position as number 1, but as it stands no one will be taking it any time soon.
