TV personality and Entrepreneur Tasmin Lucia-Khan has been nominated for Live Streamer of the Year at the 10th Annual Shorty Awards. Hailed as the Oscars of Social Media by CBS News, the Shorty Awards is the leading organization honoring excellence across social media and the internet. Tasmin Lucia-Khan is up against the likes of Hollywood actor Vin Diesel, Pittsburgh Steelers’s Antonio Brown and Quiz Daddy, Scott Rogowsky.
Winners are chosen through a combination of votes from the public and scores given by the RealTime Academy. Past winners include Taylor Swift, Malala Yousafzai, J.K. Rowling and DJ Khaled. 2018’s winners will be announced at a star-studded ceremony on April 15, 2018, in New York City’s Times Square.
Tasmin Lucia-Khan: “What happens on social media, no longer stays on social media. With just one tweet, one post, one video, you can engage an audience of millions and start a global movement. Just look at the #MeToo and Time’s Up movement. It’s incredible how today’s global citizens can unify with one click, to amplify and address the inequalities and injustices we see around us. I’m honored to be nominated for a Shorty Award.”
