Meet Sammy K, a teen YouTuber and makeup artist, in our first 2019 social media spotlight.
How did you start doing YouTube?
“I started doing YouTube when I turned 13. I gave my parents a folder of videos I wanted to make, and they helped me start my channel.”
The best part of YouTube?
“The best part of YouTube is definitely being able to document the best days of my life in a special way! I can’t wait to be 80 years old, sitting in my rocker, and watching what I did when I was 15.”
The hardest part?
“Sticking to an upload schedule, it just doesn’t work for me.”
Favorite video you’ve made?
“Definitely when I vlogged with Kenzie Ziegler. My friends and I went out to look for her as a joke, but we ended up getting to hang with her a bit! It was definitely an act of God that Kenzie was in my vlog that day. She was so kind, and I recommend that anyone visiting my channel watches that video.”
What do you do outside of YouTube?
“I love makeup. I have been doing special effects and beauty makeup since I was eight years old. I’m 15 now and have grown in my skills so much. I can’t wait to see how much I’ve improved in my artistry seven years from now!”
What’s your advice for someone who wants to start a YouTube channel?
“I think my best, or most real and helpful, advice is to know that your videos are going to be cringey when you first start. Mine were awful, your favorite YouTubers’ were awful, and yours will be, too. That’s what makes it so amazing when you get better and grow! You can see how far you’ve come (and have a good laugh).”
