Today we’re joined by Emmy. Emmy is a wonderful young YouTuber who enjoys making skits and vlogs. She’s very passionate about what she does, as you’ll soon read. My thanks to her for taking the time to participate in this interview.
Please, tell us about your art.
I’m a young YouTuber, who makes videos weekly. They are normally either skits or just me talking to the camera.
What inspires you?
The thought that one day I can make someone smile because of my videos
What got you interested in your field? Have you always wanted to be an artist?
I have always wanted to be an artist and a friend of mine recommended that I try YouTube.
Do you have any kind of special or unique signature, symbol, or feature you include in your work that you’d be willing to reveal?
At the end of my videos I always remind my viewers the keep smiling.
What advice would you give young aspiring artists?
Keep trying even if no one believes and you, and always- always smile.
Where on the spectrum do you identify?
I’m biromantic and asexual.
Have you encountered any kind of ace prejudice or ignorance in your field? If so, how do you handle it?
What’s the most common misconception about asexuality that you’ve encountered?
People seem to think that it’s not a real identity,or that I’m doing it for attention. Asexuality is real.
What advice would you give to any asexual individuals out there who might be struggling with their orientation?
You are valid, and you don’t need to label yourself right away. It’s perfectly okay to be questioning your identity for months and even years. Don’t let it stress you out. And there are many people in this world who are just like you.
Finally, where can people find out more about your work?
My YouTube channel.
Thank you, Emmy, for participating in this interview and this project. It’s very much appreciated.
