The YouTube Story
Nikki loved watching YouTube videos right from her childhood, but she never thought about creating her own channel. By the time she turned eighteen she had undergone traumas, so wanted to do something to restore her confidence.
Nikki then created her YouTube channel in November 2013, and her first upload was a make-up haul video. Back then, she was naive and did not have advanced make-up skills. She was not well-equipped to post a sophisticated make-up video too, but she made the video with whatever skills and resources she had, and the video was liked by the viewers.
Nikki is obsessed with her hair. She can go to any extent in order to take good care of her tresses. Quite naturally, she shared her hair care routine in her next video. She also gave a few tips to protect one’s hair after a chemical treatment. She also spoke about the pros and cons of hair straightening using chemicals and ways to manage frizzy curls.
The next video that she posted was a travel vlog. In the video, she shared her experience of travelling from Denver to New York. She then posted a make-up tutorial on how to look pretty on Valentine’s Day. She also made a video on a beauty hack which shared with viewers tips to grow longer eyelashes.
She also posted a video about incorporating natural products like coffee, honey and sugar into one’s skincare routine instead of using chemical products that are available in the market. Nikki had now become an expert in posting videos on make-up and hairstyle. She then shifted her attention towards reviewing various products.
Nikki then posted videos in which she reviewed products of many high-end as well as drugstore make-up brands. Nikki also posted a few make-up tutorials on creating unusual looks. Some of the videos that she posted under this category include ‘Annabelle inspired Halloween makeup Tutorial’ and ‘Betty Boop Halloween Makeup Tutorial’.
Next, she started posting a series of vlogs which she titled ‘Tell It Like It Is.’ In this series, she shared some of her views on trending topics and associated them with some of the incidents that she encountered in her life. Though she was still posting a lot of videos pertaining to make-up, she did manage to post story time videos once in a while.
The first major story time video that she posted was titled ‘The time my best friend slept with my ex.’ Thereafter, she continued posting many story time videos. Nikki also spoke about undergoing treatment for cancer at age 15. She detected a big lump on her left shoulder and was immediately admitted to a hospital.
The most difficult part for her was to cope up with the changes that occurred in her appearance due to chemotherapy. She could not bear the fact that she would soon turn bald. Thinking about it, she underwent huge mental trauma. Nevertheless, the cancerous tumor was eliminated, but she was left with an ugly scar on her shoulder which kept her from wearing sleeveless clothes for a long time.
Nikki now proudly wears the scar and expresses no shame in telling others how she survived cancer. Nikki has also posted videos on her love affairs and her past relationships. She condemned body shaming in one of her videos. In another video, she shared a few useful tricks to camouflage structural birth defects without having to undergo surgeries.
