English and Spanish Twitch streamer Neekolul Joined 100 Thieves as an addition to their team of content creators. 

As Neekolul joined 100 Thieves, the streamer said, "If you would’ve told me 2 years ago that this is the spot I would be in, I would’ve had a full-blown anxiety attack. I’ve been a big fan of 100 Thieves and the content they’ve been creating for a while now, especially from strong female voices such as Valkyrae and BrookeAB. Signing with 100 Thieves has been a dream, and I’m really excited to have found an organization that wants to support me and help me turn my passion into a career."

I know she is going to fit in perfectly at 100 Thieves, and we’re looking forward to seeing her grow more as a content creator with us."
