While most 16 year olds are still struggling to decide what they want to do with their lives (DW, it’s totally normal) this week’s betty babe had no doubt about her passion. Aged just 13, the savvy star created her very own YouTube channel, Olivia Grace. Super-cute Liv’s personality shines through every one of her videos making them legit addictive – it’s no wonder we’re obsessed. Keep on reading to find out more about our girl crush this week…
She’s got an awesome YouTube channel
Olivia’s YouTube fame has gone from strength to strength since she began posting videos three years ago. Now, thanks to her fun personality and amazing content, she’s living the real life dream as one of YT’s youngest stars with over 100k subscribers! Her channel often features vids with her online and off-screen BF Evie – the pair can be found chatting all things makeup and music as well as doing some pretty hilarious challenges, too. We’re hoping this adorbs pair have room for another squad member because we’re deffo interested.
She’s so real
You only have to watch one of Liv’s videos to realise this girl is totally down-to-earth. Her channel discusses real-life topics from love, to friendship problems, to how to nail a selfie. In a recent interview with the BBC, she admitted her selfie game was not always on point. She said: “OMG the old Instagram selfies I used to post were not cute. Like seriously, they were so embarrassing”. Don’t worry, hun. We’ve all been there.
Olivia is also totally switched on to the reality of our obsession with the digital world. She talks openly about the pressure social media puts on young girls and is not afraid to speak up. She said throughout her career as a serial social media lover, she has learnt loads about being safe online and urges other teens to be safe when posting about themselves too.
She’s a fashionista
As well as doing a variety of cute challenges and girl-chat vids on her channel, Olivia also offers some top fashion advice. She rocks everything from streetwear to florals and her trainer collection has us in a spin. Liv thrifts the majority of her clothes from charity shops or gets them on the high-street and her lookbooks are great for inspo. This girl’s style is #goals and deffo worth checking out if you’re in need of a wardrobe rework.
She gets loads of inspo from other Instagram personalities too, including singer/songwriter Mabel. But her ambitions don’t stop at YouTube. Olivia’s main goal in life is to have her own clothing line! We love that she’s not afraid to dream big, it’s super-inspiring to see.
She’s got other talents too
As well as being a self-taught videographer and editor, Olivia is also an amazing photographer. She studies photography at college and often uses her Instagram to exhibit her awesome work. Seriously, this girl is mega talented!
We can’t wait to see what the future brings for Olivia Grace. We’re hoping it’s full of funky fashion inspo and vids that make us belly laugh.
