In Episode 5, we chatted with James "PlagueTV" Inks - the Community and Influencer Relations Manager for To Write Love On Her Arms, which is one of the most well-known non-profit organizations in the United States! We got to talk to James about his transition from video game lover to industry professional, how he got involved with an organization as well known as TWLOHA, and how he has helped the organization adapt to the content creator world.



Since TWLOHA's origin is all about storytelling, we decided to approach this episode in the same way. This episode, you will hear about all of our origin stories and how all 3 of us (Daniel, Maggie, and James) went from video game lovers to content creators and, eventually, industry professionals! Throughout our storytelling, you'll hear about our approaches to joining the industry side of things and how we adapted to the struggles of representing companies and brands - all while disproving (or maybe even validating) your notions of what it means to work in the content creator / charity industries.
