J: How did you first get started in making YouTube videos?
CM:Before I started YouTube, I never watched videos and thought it was a complete waste of time. I would only use YouTube to play music when I would workout at home. One day, my cousins were talking about Kevjumba and how his videos were really funny. I had no clue who they were talking about and they made fun of me for it. So I searched him up on YouTube and found it interesting how anyone could create their own content and upload for everyone to see. So I decided to create a random video when I went on a cruise and I showed it to all of my friends, which they thought was very funny. So from there I continued making videos and now I have discovered that I enjoy entertaining people.
