"I don’t know what made me decide to open an account and start making videos, but I did... Three years later I was doing it full time after being offered a You Tube partnership. That basically means you get paid through advertisers to make videos... I am truly grateful to all of my fans... My ultimate goal would be to work in TV or film.
