It takes big balls to gamble with your pocket. This is even more true if this money is your student finance. Nonetheless, Mariah Casillas, known on social media as Lavagrll, pitched the farm on a wild idea, and now she’s reaping the rewards.

“When I was in college, I had a hard time figuring out what I wanted to do,” says Casillas. “I didn’t want to be defined by one thing or one degree. I actually got a whole bunch of financial aid and thought, ‘What if I used that money to buy a gaming setup instead of books?’ It was risky but it was worth it in the end because with this setup I was able to stream on Twitch and earn the money back.”
