Tell us about your YouTube channel.
When I first started YouTube, most of the videos that I made were challenges with my brother and friends. Since then, I’ve started to focus more on making fashion, beauty and lifestyle content. I love YouTube because it lets me connect with supporters and gives me a chance to be creative in ways other that social media doesn’t.
How did it come about?
I made a YouTube channel after seeing how much fun my brother Johnny was having with his. We collaborated a lot in the beginning, which definitely helped me to build my subscriber base.
What is your favorite video from your channel?
I loved the smoothie challenge that I filmed with Johnny! Even though it was super gross to film, the video was hilarious.
What are your hobbies?
I like listening to music, watching Netflix, skiing and playing soccer.
Tell us about your upcoming projects.
I just announced that I will be the face of Mudd’s first-ever girls line this year, which is super exciting! I have some other projects in the works as well, but they're secret for now.
We see that you travel a lot, do you have any traveling tips that make it funnier.
I love exploring the city that I'm visiting with my family. It's always fun to have a group of people to travel with. My sisters and I also search up the best restaurants and stores in the city on Instagram and make sure we visit them.
What is your favorite food? My favorite food is definitely chocolate. I love desserts!
What are your must have's in your bag? I always have lip balm with me.
Where is your favorite places to shop when in Los Angeles? I love shopping at the Grove. My favorite stores are Top Shop and Brandy Melville.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be? I’d live in Los Angeles because it’s sunny almost every day. There’s nothing better than that!
Do you have advice for anyone wanting to start a YouTube channel? I’d tell them to go for it and not to worry about what anyone else thinks. Make content that you love and genuinely enjoy filming as well.
What are the pros and cons of having a YouTube channel? There’s definitely more pros than cons. The best part about having a YouTube channel is being able to share myself and my life with the people who watch my videos. I try to be as real and genuine as possible and I feel like my viewers can really get to know me this way. One con is finding the time to come up with new ideas for content and to film and edit my videos. I always want to make sure that the things I post are good quality and that they're fun and exciting to watch. Balancing YouTube and school can sometimes be a challenge for sure.
What is your favorite place to eat in Los Angeles? My favorite restaurant in LA is Madeo, it’s an Italian restaurant in West Hollywood and has the most amazing pasta. I also love Chipotle - the best!!
Who do you look up to? A celebrity that I look up to is Zendaya. I think that she’s such a good role model for girls, which is something that I strive to be as well.
Have you been bullied online and if so how do you deal with it? I’ve definitely been bullied online. Some of the comments that people write on Instagram and YouTube are so mean! I usually deal with it by just ignoring it. Instead, I make sure that I surround myself with supportive and positive people who are there to help me reach my goals!
