How I Overcame my Doubts and Started a YouTube Channel
These are all normal insecurities everyone might have. I kept comparing myself to all the YouTubers I watched. They seemed perfect. I would always question, Can a YouTube fan become a YouTuber? The answer is, yes. I finally decided do what I want to do. If people do not like me, so what? I am still having fun.
Those negative thoughts actually helped me make my YouTube "About" bio. My bio is, "I'm not a beauty guru, I'm not a lifestyle expert, I'm not funny, and I'm no storyteller. I'm just a person with a camera, trying to do it all." This about page is a reminder to myself. Just because I think I am average does not mean that I cannot achieve my goals. I am branding myself as myself. I am not trying to be a character online, and I am definitely not trying to hide anything with editing. I'm just Sam. I am just trying to do the random things I love and learning while doing it. Just like the viewers at home, we will learn and grow together.
As Harry Styles once said, "A dream is only a dream until you decide to make it real." I decided to try to make it real. I could fail, but I cannot say I did not try.
