    The California native’s got fashion in the blood, it seems. According to Wikipedia, her father works in clothes manufacturing. She started her path in life in a way that doesn’t exactly scream social influencer and YouTube celebrity. She studied at a community college before moving on to a Communications Degree from the University of California.

    This is especially unusual, as she admits in an interview with  i-d.vice.com that she struggled in class with finding her voice in those days. She credits starting a channel with a friend with helping her to gain confidence.

    As with many people making it big, the channel was merely a creative outlet that the friends were passionate about. They were real, and stuck with it. To learn even more about that, search for the interview.

She talks about her feelings on how YouTube has changed the lives of a their creators, building an empire, and her personal style.
