Not many teenagers can claim self-made stardom. 18 year old YouTube star Bethany Mota has developed a devoted online following with her videos on makeup, clothes, and other teen-related topics. Her interest in making YouTube videos was a result of being bullied online. 

"I think because at the time I was experiencing the dark side of online media, I found this really positive community on youtube that I didn’t even know existed," says Mota. These days, she has a lot to be excited about - Mota has close to 6 million followers on her YouTube channel.
