Welcome to another month of YouTube International Interviews. Today, we’ll be interviewing Daggie of Chickenshedmylife.
1) How did Chickenshedmylife came to be? What inspired you to start?
When I first became a YouTuber back in April 2016. I believe that I wanted to share my story with everyone of my favourite YouTubers (including you) in order to raise awareness of Autism because I’m Autistic myself.
2) What made you decide to set up Chickenshedmylife?
Well, when I watched all videos from YouTube, I felt that I wanted to share my experiences that they never seen before. For example; I planned to film my Summer Favourites during my stay in Ethiopia – I.E. visiting Museum ETC.
3) Did this experience had a positive or a negative impact on you?
Firstly; I would like to go with the positive impact because I believe that being an Autistic YouTuber is an important opportunity to share my Autism story in terms of how my condition affected me during my infant years. But; in the other side of the negativity, I felt scared about the fact that the strangers would go through my YouTube details.
4) Ok, trivial question. Do you prefer individual or collaboration filming?
I prefer individual video.
5) The biggest challenge you’ve ever faced?
As a Small YouTuber, my main challenge is to do with the fact that I kept on reading the facts instead of learning it while filming it.
6) Any favourite videos of your own?
My favourite videos of my own are Autism in Girls and World Autism Awareness Week. – Chickenshedmylife
7) Inspiration for your channel?
My YouTube Channel inspired me to treasure good memories when I first started Chickenshed in September 2014.
8) Who are your favourite YouTubers?
My favourite YouTubers are Actingmylife (which is you because you’re my best mate); aww, thank you so much Daggie; Beccisss, Tim and Kate’s World, The Oxley’s Daily, ComedyShortsGamer and many more.
9) What can do see yourself doing in five years time?
In five years time, I would like to set up a family vlog as it got to the point where I can share my family life at home or elsewhere.
10) Is there any advice you would like to give for anyone who is starting a channel of their own?
My advice for people who is setting up their YouTube channel; don’t be afraid to share their disabilities.
