Back in March earlier this year I was invited to an workshop all about The Art of Vlogging in London. The workshop was ran by the Media Trust I was invited to the workshop by Riding for the Disabled as everyone attending this workshop was involved in the RDA in some way. During the day we made our own 1 minute video which we then could enter into a competition to become an semi finalist in this years VlogStar Competition.
Last week I had the amazing opportunity to attended the VlogStar Challenge 2019 as a semi finalist. I was chosen to be one of the very lucky 150 semi finalist of this years VlogStar which had over 1,500 participants. I attended a day of workshops at YouTube’s offices inside Google HQ.

During the day we had lots of different workshops lead by different people who worked for YouTube. During the day I learnt a lot we were given workshops in lots of different areas of how to make videos as well as how to connect yourselves with your viewers and how to make them feel as part of your YouTube community/ family.
I found the day very inspiring I came up with a few more video ideas for my channel as well as seeing how YouTube can be used as a positive platform to share your experiences and life stories about life. It was was fantastic to be around other young creatives who are using their voices on the internet to make positive changes through vlogging and making video content.
One of the workshops was called #iamremarkable during this workshop we had to think about what makes us remarkable however big the reason was. I really enjoyed doing this as it helped me to remember how I have got past obstacles I have faced and it didn’t matter how big or small it was. We then had the opportunity to share what made us remarkable if we wanted. ( To find out more about #iamremarkable visit https://iamremarkable.withgoogle.com)
Towards the end of the day we got to have Q&A panel with Grace Victory, Lucy Moon, London Hacks, Abraham and hosted by Ria Hebden. It was great to ask them our questions and to get their advice and top tips as well as hearing all about their unique YouTube journeys!
All in all an amazing day full of unique stories waiting to be let out in video content.
