Why did you start your channel? Was there something you happened that made you want to get started?
I didn’t have anything to do during the summer holiday and thought it would be fun to make some videos. I found a real passion for making my videos from then onwards.
How has YouTube changed your life?
I’m always thinking of new video ideas and things to put in my videos that make it unique. I have also met some amazing people through YouTube and it has helped me mature as person, and helped me become the person I am today.
What’s your advice for those who are just getting started? What should the be focusing on?
Only make YouTube videos because you enjoy them and NEVER copy anyone else! Taking inspiration and copying are completely different things so just be yourself and make original content and you will stand out!
What would you say to someone thinking of starting a YouTube channel?
I would say to someone starting a YouTube channel that it’s such a fun thing to do, but it’s also very hard to start off as well. Don’t be fooled by huge YouTubers like Zoella and PewDiePie. Back when they started YouTube wasn’t as big as it is now and there were much less creators, so once YouTube started to become big they already had a lot of subscribers and had already got comfortable with a camera. So don’t just do YouTube to get tons of subscribers because it’s very difficult to, just do it because you enjoy creating videos!
What do you think your subscribers would say if we asked them why they’re subscribed to you?
I think that they would say that they have subscribed because they enjoy my videos and the content that I upload. Some of them also may say that they have subscribed to be able to enter my huge giveaway that I am running at the moment!
If you had to summarize your channel for someone who has never watched your videos, what would you say?
I have recently changed the style of how I edit my videos and the topics of my videos. My videos are challenges with my friends, vegan what I eat in a day, life hacks, DIY’s and inspirational videos. All of my videos are edited in an original way to make them different and more interesting to watch. My videos are normally around 2-3 minutes to keep my viewers engaged all the way through.
