YouTube has been my passion project since I was a shy junior in high school with a camera and a desperate need for a new hobby. There's something so magical to me about this community of people who connect from all over the world based on sharing their life and passions. My channel, Curlyhairlove, has grown with me over the past 9 years and though my consistency with posting videos has ebbed and flowed, it's always remained my favorite creative outlet. Making YouTube videos gives me a safe space to try out new skills and equipment and has introduced me to amazing people from so many different places. I'm beyond proud to call myself a YouTuber.
