Now, after everything Valkyrae has achieved, she keeps setting her goals higher and higher. In a recent tweet, the 100 Thieves Co-Owner revealed to her fans that she aims to make it to the Forbes 30 under 30 list. Not only does Rae have an aim, but she also conveyed that she has a lot planned for the same.

After making her plans public, Rae plans to work even harder than she previously was. Clearly, for fans, it means a lot more content and projects coming from her end. Her colleagues, such as Disguised Toast, Ninja, Jacksepticeye, and several others have already made an appearance on the list, and Rae doesn’t want to be left out.

With all the support that Valkyrae has from her fans and friends, she has a very good chance of making it to the prestigious list. Moreover, the YouTube streamer has enough feathers in her cap to make her eligible for an appearance in the 30 under 30 list.
