The YouTube Dream
There comes a time in life when one has to make a decision about what they want to do. Some people have it all figured out in high school. “I want to be a doctor!” “I want to be a lawyer!” “I want to be a nuclear physicist!” But there are those who think they know what they want but later on find out that they want to do something else. I’m one of those people. It’s tough, when you are in high school, to think about all that stuff when you’re barely grown up. I wasn’t mature enough to think about my future in that way. It’s a difficult decision that others think is really easy to make. When I got into college I changed my major multiple times and finally settled on one that would land me a job. Luckily the major I finally decided on grew on me. Honestly though, I do have another dream. Granted, this dream didn’t take root until I started my second YouTube channel in 2009, but it’s a pretty big dream nonetheless.
YouTube, even with all the haters, is a supportive community. I wouldn’t have made it this far without you guys. YouTube has done so much for me and helped me grow. I’m always so very touched when I see comments about how I’ve inspired someone. I’m getting emotional just thinking back on the times people have said that they look up to me. If it wasn’t for my YouTube viewers, I wouldn’t have gotten any sales on my Etsy account. If it wasn’t for YouTube, I wouldn’t have started a website and rediscovered my love for writing/blogging.
I just feel very blessed and am grateful to each and every one of you. You have given me a dream I would never have dreamt of in a million years. If it wasn’t for those comments about making a doll tutorial, I wouldn’t have gotten to where I am now. I wouldn’t have been featured on PlayStation magazine. There’s only one way to go from here….up. And I’m hoping you guys will be there with me.
