5)  What do you think, you could bring to the YouTube community that isn’t already there ?

It took me a long time to realize what my unique point is and I can finally say that it is my diversified content. I have fashion videos, sketches, travel vlogs, dance and music videos all on my channel. It is an extension of all my interests.

6) What’s the funniest thing you have ever done when you were really bored?

While I’m bored, I usually scour few of my subscribers on my social media accounts. That is something I do when I’m really bored and have nothing else to do. Being a student and a vlogger hardly leaves you with any free time though.

7) If there is one time or moment in the last year or month, that you would change, what moment would it be?

I would like to completely change the moment when my camera got stolen at The YouTube Fan Fest. I had left it in my green room for 5 minutes to be precise and it was gone. I wish I had kept it with myself throughout. I really don’t understand why would anyone do such a thing.

8) Focusing on your career aspirations. Ten years from now, where do you see yourself?

Focusing on my career, I probably see myself heading a successful business. I have always wanted that and I am sure and hopeful that with continued hard work and support from my fans and followers, I will surely achieve that one day.
