Content creation may be an easy career path to take. You just have to post on social media, right? But because the pool of content creators has become so huge nowadays, you’ve got to be creative to stay on top. This is exactly what Monet McMichael is doing.
Hailing from south New Jersey, McMichael, 23, is a Puerto Rican and African-American content creator known worldwide. Her content features her candor, chatting with the camera with ease and enthusiasm, being an open book for her viewers. Her content include everything from school, work and dating, to DIY tutorials, makeup tips and even armpit hair waxing. That’s how she gets real.
“I think the audience that gathered around on my platform made me feel so safe,” McMichael said in an interview with the media. “I felt like we could honestly just do anything together for the first time. And especially when I’m trying something like waxing, I was like, ‘No, we have to do this together.’”
She also does not shy away from showing things others prefer to keep private. That’s her style, after all.
“I’ve always been rebellious,” she said.
Journey to self-love
McMichael’s vlogging journey started when she was in middle and high school. At 12 years old, she made her first YouTube video, taking inspiration from other creators she was watching.
However, despite the openness of her content, she revealed she did not always have the confidence to be so candid in front of the camera.
In her path to fame, McMichael has also documented her path to self-love, that part that allows her fans to know almost everything about her.
“I think my self-love journey was definitely a long one, especially just my experience being a teenage girl who was very different in my high school,” she shared.
