Boy has the world changed since I first started my journey in this industry almost 7 years ago. YouTube was barely a thing, I don't think Snapchat existed and people watched TV and movies on their actual TVs whenever the programs aired because recording wasn't an option.
Now, there are series exclusive to YouTube like "We Are Savvy" starring 15 year-old Spencer Barbosa which is now in it's second season. She has over 64,000 followers on Instagram and is as humble as can be. I was recently lucky enough to be able to chat with her about her success and what we can expect for the next season of her show. Check out the Q&A below:
What is your personal definition of success?
To me being successful is waking up every single day with the feeling of ambition and determination. Being successful is being happy and hardworking. Sucess is not measured by the money in your bank account or the number of followers you have. Sucess is being happy with what you have and agonizing how much hard work you have put into getting that far.
You’ve acquired quite the following - what advice do you have for those looking to follow in your footsteps?
Yes! I absolutely love what I do, I strongly encourage everyone to follow their dreams. My advice for anyone who would like to get into acting and social media is to love yourself. There are tons of people who love to support and motivate you, but there will always be those very few people who are just negative. Just try not to let it get to you, and surround yourself with people who believe in you constantly. Ps. I believe in you, you got this.
Can you tease what we can expect to see in the second season of “We Are Savvy”?
Season Two of We Are Savvy is INCREDIBLE .... you will not be able to stop laughing, it's so funny. Season two features tons of YouTubers, diys and challenges. It's literally my favorite things all in one show....it features fashion, makeup, singing, friends, and laughter. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do.
