The 16-year-old YouTube starlet opens up with the mag about her new modeling career, her experience at Coachella, and YouTube. Check it:
On YouTube: “When I as about 13 I signed with a network and that’s when I really saw that it was a whole world, that this could be my career and that there were so many other careers surrounding it. That’s also the year that I figured out YouTube, what people wanted to see – I was making a lot of content just around that time. I was seeing the impact that it had and I was being noticed more if I went to the mall or something. I realized it was pretty big! I don’t have a specific upload date, I try to do Saturday’s but I kind of upload whenever I think it makes sense. I film once a month at the YouTube space, I just knock out all of my videos for the month then because it’s kind of hard for me to film all my videos on my own.”
On Coachella: “It was crazy, I went both weekends, which totally killed me. I’m like sick now recovering from it! I was even more sick after the first weekend so it was intense. But it was a great time and being there with your friends and just listening to the music, it’s always great to get away.”
On modeling: “It’s really exciting! When I first went to New York to finally meet with them after I signed it was really great I had a bunch of meetings, I got to see the whole modeling world and kind of get thrown into that and I’ve been doing test shoots which is really awesome and also been auditioning for acting roles from WME. Nothing has really come out yet but we’re all just working together and figuring it out.”
