Description

What gatekeepers are holding you back from doing what you love?

I’m inspired by the creators on YouTube.

They are people who have forged their own path.

They didn’t wait for someone to allow them to make videos- they just went out and did it.

They’ve dealt with negative comments. They’ve had failed videos. They’ve faced countless setbacks. And they still continued to create.

You have to give yourself permission to find and express your true self.

On today’s episode of The School of Greatness, I created a mashup of all my favorite interviews with the women of YouTube: Lilly Singh, iJustine, Bethany Mota, and Lindsey Sterling.

Lilly Singh (aka iiSuperwomanii) is a multi-faceted comedian, entertainer, actress and the founder of #GirlLove. She has found worldwide fame through her comedic and inspirational YouTube videos, amassing 12 million subscribers. In March 2017, she released her debut book HOW TO BE A BAWSE: A Guide to Surviving Conquering Life, which became a #1 New York Times Best Seller. As a role model to women and girls around the globe, Singh created her #GirlLove initiative to break the cycle of girl-on-girl hate and encourage women to build each other up.

Justine Ezarik, the YouTube personality better known as iJustine, took the internet by storm. She's been around for more than a decade, first popping up on YouTube in 2006 where she has accumulated millions of subscribers and fans. The vlogger still remains beloved and has since branched out with a bustling Instagram account and a memoir.

Bethany Mota started with her channel, Macbarbie07 in 2009. She rose to fame for her haul videos, in which she shows her fashion and style purchases via the internet. She uploads videos of outfit ideas, makeup and hair tutorials, recipes, and do it yourself ideas. She has since expanded into her own fashion line at Aéropostale. She has gone on multiple tours, which she calls her "Motavatours" to meet and interact with fans. She also appeared on Season 19 of Dancing with the Stars.

Lindsey Sterling is a violinist with 10 million YouTube subscribers, over 1.9 billion views on her YouTube channel, 2 Billboard Music Awards, Billboard chart-topping hits and sold-out tours worldwide.

All of these women share a common drive that forces them to keep putting themselves out there and keep being better each day.
