When did you start creating content and how did you get started?

I started creating content when I was 18 years old in High School. It gave me something to do in my free time and I genuinely loved creating videos and taking photos.

How do you come up with ideas for your YouTube channel?

I think of videos I would want to see on YouTube. I vlog exciting things that happen in my life, I try to tell my story through YouTube videos. I pretend as if I am talking to my friends and family, catching them up on my life.

How have you been able to use Klaia as a content creator?

Klaia helps me keep my brand deals in one place. I use to write everything (deadlines, payments, and guidelines) down and have to update my lists constantly. I love all the features Klaia has to offer.

How long does it take you to film, edit and upload a YouTube video?

It takes me a day to film my video and depending on how busy I am that week with school and work, I try to get my video edited and uploaded to YouTube within the same week.

When were you able to monetize your YouTube channel?

I was able to monetise my YouTube channel about 2 years after I started. I have been monetized for 2-3 years now. It’s a great way for creators to earn money for all the time they’ve spent working on videos. I hope to one day turn YouTube/Content Creation into my full time job.

What have been the most challenging and rewarding aspects of being an influencer?

Finding time while being a full time student in college and  having two jobs, it’s really hard to spend all your time on content. But it’s something I love, so I continue creating.

Are you a student? If so, how do you balance school and content creation?

Yes, I am full time college student. I am a senior at Rowan University, and it’s been really hard to balance, but I like to take the weekends for content.

What advice would you give to someone starting to pursue content creation?

Be creative, don’t do what everyone else is doing. Find a way to stick out and create a connection with your audience.
