  • - You're a pretty big deal.

  • Congratulations on all your success.

  • - I'm a big deal? Are you kidding? Oh, my God.

  • - Yeah. - This is, like,

  • "I'm alive right now."

  • This is crazy.

  • - Thank you so much for having me.

  • - Of course. Thank you for being here.

  • And you flew your mom in. Hi, Mom.

  • - She's here, yeah. Hi, Mom. - Hi.

  • Your mom--what's her name? Jackie?

  • - Queen Jackie, yeah. - Queen Jackie.

  • - Queen Jackie.

  • - What an amazing young man, right?

  • You must be so proud of him.

  • - I am. Words can't even explain it.

  • You know, when you're a parent, you always think,

  • "Am I doing the right thing?"

  • And looking up there, it's just amazing to me.

  • - You did the right thing. He's doing--

  • He's making a lot of good change.

  • So for people who don't know what you do on the internet--

  • yes, if you don't know what he does--

  • [cheers and applause]

  • It's what a lot of people do,

  • but you're very successful at it.

  • Just tell everyone what you're doing.

  • - So I talk about my life just on YouTube.

  • So I've been making videos for eight years now,

  • and I talk about pop culture.

  • I talk about everything that's going on in my life.

  • I do collaborations with other Youtubers,

  • and some celebrities,

  • and I just like to have a diary.

  • And now, eight years later, I do it for a job.

  • - Why do you think people are flocking to you

  • and you're so successful?

  • - I think people just want to watch people

  • live their authentic lives, and share the good and the bad,

  • and kind of show that

  • maybe you can have fun

  • and still be a positive influence maybe,

  • or have a good impact, or do good,

  • and it can still be entertaining.

  • You don't have to be sassy or negative.

  • You can just kind of have fun and be yourself,

  • and that's enough.

  • - Without being mean, yeah. - Yeah.

  • I feel like it's the luckiest job in the world I feel.

  • - Yeah. And you put out videos and you influenced

  • one very famous person, which must have felt amazing to you.

  • - Yeah.

  • So back in, like, 2008, I made a video

  • about the importance of being authentic to yourself,

  • and about coming out,

  • and how you should wait till you're ready

  • and things like that.

  • And a few years later, I got a tweet one morning

  • on National Coming Out Day.

  • And it was from Ricky Martin.

  • And he said that that video was a part of the reason

  • why he felt ready to share his story.

  • And it was like one of those things where I was, like,

  • "Oh, my God."

  • Like, I used to watch "TRL" and, like, have a crush on him.

  • - Yeah. - And, so, I was, like--

  • It was, like, you never-- I just never thought that I--

  • - that would happen. - That's amazing.

  • - Yeah. - That's amazing that you had

  • - impact on Ricky Martin. - Yeah.

  • - And now you've interviewed-- you went to the White House.

  • You interviewed One Direction, the First Lady.

  • - Mm-hmm. - What was it like

  • at the White House?

  • We had a meeting of maybe ten of us YouTubers

  • meeting with the President.

  • And it was just us talking about using the internet

  • to connect with young people.

  • And it was, like, one of those moments, like,

  • you never dream it'll happen.

  • And then--I was so shy during the whole time

  • because I was, like, "Oh, my God.

  • That's the President." And I was, like,

  • just, oh, my God, bewildered.

  • And he was, like, "Do you want to come and see the office?"

  • And so we--and apparently he doesn't bring

  • that many people in there,

  • so he was giving us a tour of his office,

  • and he was telling us about his desk.

  • And there was, like, a moment of silence

  • where I was, like, "Okay. Nobody's saying anything.

  • "This is my chance to, like, make an impact

  • and say something he'll remember."

  • And I was, like, "Cute desk."

  • - So you make-- you make videos

  • A lot of people watch your videos.

  • And so I thought that I would give you something

  • so the next time you shoot a video,

  • I want you to shoot it with this.

  • - Oh, my God. [laughing]

  • Oh, that's perfect.

- You're a pretty big deal.
