Bethany Mota Reveals The Hardest Part About Starting Her YouTube Channel

Bethany Mota is all about taking leaps of faith and not letting your fears define you.

The YouTuber and author, who is pictured at YouTube Space in London on Friday (June 30), spoke to Money mag about facing big fears and trusting yourself.

“It’s just about taking the first step,” Bethany says. “That was the hardest part about starting my YouTube channel. After I uploaded the first video, the second, third, and fourth ones became easier, because I allowed myself to make that first step.”

She adds, “You can build things up in your head to be so scary, but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t go for it. When you’re not doing something that scares you, you’re not growing and you’re not learning.”

Bethany Mota Opens Up About Being Bullied & Accepting Her Body in a New Interview

Bethany Mota Opens Up About Being Bullied & Accepting Her Body in a New Interview

Youtube star Bethany Mota‘s new memoir, Make Your Mind Up (watch the announcement here), delves into both her ups and her downs over the years, and in a new interview, Bethany gets real about some of the struggles she has been through.

“It was when Myspace was around,” the 21-year-old recalled to Entertainment Tonight in a Facebook Live interview, revealing that when she was young, bullies made a Myspace page identical to hers but “all of the photos had mean captions.”

She was only 12 at the time.

“I was never like, ‘Oh maybe I need to lose weight, maybe I need to go on a diet,’” she said, “Those thoughts had never crossed my mind until that point so that’s kind of when I lost that innocence.”

Reliving all of that pain to write the memoir was difficult for her: “I started feeling those feelings again and I started just remembering exactly what that felt like and it wasn’t a good time, it was a dark time and it was a little scary.”

Fortunately, she overcame her demons — in terms of both bullies and pressure to look a certain way to be accepted — and now she is focused on being healthy and strong.
