hm, I say go at it at a passionate, leisurely pace to get your footing and voice while still maintaining an income on the side. once you start feeling confident, try treating it as a business and partner with brand that you see a right fit that you want to create content (or whatever else ideas you have!) for. it can be a slow burn, but I definitely think it's not something to jump into head first to make money.

aw thanks for finding me! heh - it's just my arms. the lens on my camera is pretty wide so it captures everything from an arms distance (it's the canon g7x mII)

Hi, Rachel! I was wondering, beside making videos and blogging, what other things you do for a living? And... thankyou so much for being such an inspiration. December is tough and watching your videos is somewhat therapeutic and makes me want to stay productive <3

it's kinda been taking up most of my time lately. i used to consult way more, but I haven't been hustling jobs to do that. just one client right now - i've been helping her develop a denim brand.

Are you still planning on doing a career talk video, I remember you mentioning this and I was really looking forward but not sure if you scrapped the idea or just haven't got around to it?

i have, but i don't know how to actually make it and think of the narrative. it's taken me some time to figure it out because i don't want to come off as awfully arrogant. Till said video gets some attention, here's some interviews I've done about my own journey https://www.couturesquemag.com/single-post/rachel-nguyen-interview http://thestyleline.com/rachel-nguyen/

i don't know! try exfoliating more? when I start getting clogged up, I have a blackhead extractor and sit there and pick at my face for far too long and I definitely should not be doing that. so i don't recommend it even though that's what I do 😉

Admin Reply by: Rachel
hiii, you can always check https://www.youtube.com/music_policies and search songs you plan on using. two other tests I do is seeing if the song is shazamable or i can look up the song on youtube, and if it's copywritten it'll show the song information in the official description. as far as usage, i don't know.... i gamble it and just use it. hope that helps!

When did you move out of your parents' house and was it something they were okay with when you moved away and got your own apartment? Is it expensive to live in California?

Hi Raych! I have an issue that I need advice on and considering how confident you are I think you are the right person to ask. Unfortunately for medical reasons I have to get braces for 2 years. I am a 19 year old with a self esteem as low as it gets and I think the braces will make me miserable and not want to go out etc. I don't know how to emBRACE them. lol what do you think??

omg girl, it's a part of life. look at i-d, they make braces look cool: https://i-d.vice.com/en_uk/article/mbeyy3/tbt-the-best-fashion-braces-moments just smile as big as you can. trying to hide it only reeks more of how you feel about it, own it. you have no other choice.
