“I joined FaZe. We are in FaZe!!” Kalei excitedly announced on her stream as she pulled up the announcement on Twitter, accompanied by hundreds of flooding chat comments congratulating her on the news. “What the f**k I’m in FaZe!”
The announcement was immediately followed by a dedicated Kalei montage welcoming her to the organization.
Kalei, with over 300k followers on Twitch, known for her Warzone gameplay, caught the attention of FaZe Clan because of “high-level sniper skills in Call of Duty and being unapologetically herself, not conforming to the stereotype of a typical female streamer in a male-dominated industry,” according to FaZe Clan’s official press release. They also alluded to her passion and drive for the gaming industry, adding not only that she’d been streaming for over five years, but up to 10-12 hours “every single day.”
Today, her hard work paid off.
“You guys don’t understand. I was always the underdog in the community, but to sit here and finally prove… everyone wrong, chat you guys don’t understand,” said Kalei during her announcement stream.
In addition to her fans and Kalei herself, FaZe Clan expressed their excitement for their new org member.
“We are thrilled to have Kalei join the FaZe family,” said FaZe Clan CEO Lee Trink in the press release. “Kalei has true FaZe style star power and we support her resolve to remain true to her authentic self without conforming to a particular idea of what a female gamer should look or act like. Welcome to FaZe, Kalei!”
