Throughout these years, her journey to be a Youtuber was not easy for her. She has to struggle and face many bad situations. Because of her hard work, she got to succeed.

“I basically had no friends and was doing YouTube out of my bedroom at home. It was very dark, and dreary, and boring. I didn’t have anyone. That was why I wanted to be a part of the YouTube community so badly. Not because I was like, Oh, my God, I want to be famous and hang out with this famous YouTuber. I wanted a social structure.” said Emma.
