CarolaneCP (better known as Carolane Chartrand-Plourde) has 2 jobs: by day, she’s a teacher. By night, she’s an emerging Beauty & Lifestyle YouTube creator who just passed her first milestone, 10K subscribers. We’ve watched her channel grow to almost 11K subscribers in the past week, and it’s easy to see why: she’s fun, bubbly and has great hair. There’s no stopping this 22 year old beauty, and we’re excited to see what 2016 brings for her.
We asked CarolaneCP to share more about herself, her goals for 2016 and her channel – here’s what she had to say.
Congrats on hitting 10K subscribers! How does it feel?
It is the best feeling ever! I am so passionate about making Youtube videos and I am so thankful that 10,000 people enjoy what I do. My subscribers are the best and they’re my second family! I never thought I would hit that milestone when I first started. It motivates me to post the best content and to keep being myself in videos.
What’s your next big goal for 2016? Any milestones you’re hoping to achieve this year?
2015 has been such an amazing year for me! My first goal is to reach 50 000 subscribers this year. It will be hard work, but I bet I can do it with the help of my viewers! I also want to improve the quality of my videos.
What are some of your do’s and don’t’s for when you create videos?
When I make a video, I like to think as if I were talking to my family or my closest friends. I could never recommend something that I don’t truly love or pretend to be somebody else. I want my subscribers to be able to relate to me and to talk to me like they know me! That’s why I always make sure to reply to everybody both under my videos and on social medias!
What would your dream partnership/sponsorship be?
I’m a haircare and makeup junkie. My dream sponsorship would be to work with the big brands in the beauty community!
How would you describe yourself in 3 words only?
Perky, bright, happy!
Dog! I’m loyal to my family, they’re my everything! I also get excited for pretty much everything and anything!
What do most people NOT know about you?
I’m a teacher in real life, and while most people don’t know I make Youtube videos, most of my subscribers don’t know I’m a teacher!
If you could go anywhere, where would you go?
Europe! I love its architecture and culture.
When did you start your YouTube Channel?
I started my channel about a year and a half ago.
Why did you decide to start your channel?
I was really inspired by other YouTubers and I wanted a place where I could talk about the stuff I wanted to and what I’m passionate about like beauty and fashion!
Did you get it right from the start, or was it a work in progress?
It took a while to get rid of the awkwardness of the first videos, but I can now say that I am 100% myself in my videos and it feels so good!
How has YouTube changed your life?
Youtube is now my life, period. I am still a student and I work part time outside of youtube, but when I’m not at school or at work, I do Youtube. I love it so much it inspires me and makes me happy!
What’s your advice for people who are just getting started on YouTube?
They should make videos because they love them, not because they want subscribers or because they think that people will like the video. When you do something that you like, the viewers know it and they are more likely to subscribe!
Who are some of your favorite YouTube creators?
Why do you work with Grapevine?
I love the idea of trying new products and feature them in my videos! I like to inspire my viewers and to let them know about the best products out there!
