Dear Zoe Sugg (AKA Zoella),
Where do I start?
You are my biggest and most important influence. Watching your videos and reading your blog has shown me and taught me so much. From the fact that moisturisers exist to simply being entertained watching your hauls. Your style and amazing life has given me so many ideas of what I can do with my own life.
Watching you do 24 days of Zoella last year along with Vlogmas showed me that you can do whatever you put your mind to. You gave me something to look forward to everyday during one of the most stressful months of my life with my first ever exam periods along with a kitten entering my life. Your videos have lead me to new YouTubers who also have given me advice that have influenced me to start this blog.
If it wasn’t for me stumbling onto your YouTube channel all those years ago I wouldn’t have any of the goals I’ve set for myself to achieve. Your life is everything I one day wish to achieve. You have a loving partner who appears to dote on you in every way that I hope mine will for years to come. You have an amazing house that fits your personality down to the T. Youre homeware collection is so beautiful and the way you have it set up around your house is not only 100% functional but gorgeous as well. Nala is such a cute dog and watching the way both you and Alfie interact with her has made me so happy on days where I don’t necessarily feel like smiling.
I’ve been thinking what it is about you that resonants with me and I think it’s the fact that you’ve managed to overcome anxiety and be yourself all while making a living doing what you love. Not only have you achieved so much in such a short amount of time but you’ve done it with grace in humility that I only wish I can emulate.
You are so influential to me that for the past 3 years you have been the only constant on my motivation board (something you inspired me to do). You also gave me the drive (pun intended) to hopefully be able to get a mini convertible by my 20th birthday, I know it seems like an almost impossible goal, but I’m sure with your encouragement, simply by living your life.
