Lucy, YouTube Star
“Growing up in the UK, I did not face any difficulties. I was lucky enough to pursue my passion: teaching English. I’ve always being interested in teaching languages. I started teaching face-to-face, I observed the way other teachers conducted their classes, and then I got inspired to teach differently, and that was the beginning of my journey as a Youtuber.
When I wanted to start my YouTube channel, my ex-boyfriend disagreed. His lack of support led me to stop the relationship and pursue my dream in January 2016. Which I do not regret.
I started completely from scratch with a £500 business loan from my dad, paid back with interest. Today I have more than 650,000 subscribers and more than 12 million views on my channel. Embrace yourself and just go for it”.
