Niki & Gabi, LaurDIY & More Digital Influencers Reflect on 2017 Accomplishments

Rebecca Zamolo

YouTube subscribers: 2.3 million
Twitter followers: 55,000
Instagram followers: 946,000

Biggest success of 2017: ” Hitting 1 Million Subscribers on my YouTube channel was definitely a huge milestone for me. When I hit 2 Million later in the year, it was completely surreal. I love making content that makes people laugh and smile, and I’m just so grateful I get to do it everyday.”

Goals for 2018: “I would love to shoot a movie in 2018. My background is in producing and making a movie has always been a big dream of mine. I would love to continue to make fun and creative videos for my YouTube channel, and hopefully travel and meet my fans overseas.”

Her biggest fail and how she overcame it : “I have fails everyday! I make mistakes, but I like to take those lessons and improve on myself. I’m a constant work in progress.”

Best advice for someone looking to succeed in the social media space: “I try to surround myself with people that I trust and that are honest. My friends aren’t afraid to tell me if they think I’m making a mistake or laugh at my weirdness. I never want to be put on a pedestal. No one is better or worse than anyone else, we’re all equals, but with social media it can be confusing.

I think it’s important to remember that with social media, things can change every minute. Whoever is popular now, may not be tomorrow, so treating everyone equal and being a nice person is in my opinion, the best way to go.”

Favorite rising star right now: “I wouldn’t necessarily call her a rising star as she’s been doing music forever and has a strong YouTube presence, but my good friend Madilyn Bailey is one of the most talented singers and artists you’ll ever hear and I know there are big things in store for 2018.”
