BHS- Where you want to go, if you love to write!
Tyler Oakley is and has been amazing icon since he first started YouTube in 2007. He is very entertaining to watch and shows his incredible outgoing personality, that most of us are afraid to show. After over 9 years of posting videos on Youtube, he has gotten more than 8 million subscribers and has an endless amount of accomplishments. An amazing charity he has worked with for years is The Trevor Project, a foundation trying to prevent suicide among the LGBT youth community that he has helped raise thousands of dollars for.
In September 2015, he released a video called “Dare To Be you”. The goal was to help people be themselves more, instead of pretending to fit in. He encourages people to be themselves just as he is. Being on youtube, he decided to show all sides of himself. This challenge is also very important because while dealing with bullies, it’s hard to still be convinced that being yourself is the right choice.
Something he said once was “The only constant you have from Point A, your birth, to Point B, your death, is you.” His videos try to make people realise that that’s ok. If you're stuck with yourself, you might as well be happy or else it might not last as long as others hope. He tries to make others see that they can only be really happy by expressing themselves by showing their interests, opinions and to not be afraid to be their own individual selves.
