It’s a pleasure interviewing you Samira, tell us something about you. Where are you from, what is your education, family background and hobbies?
Hi! I’m from London, England. I left school 6 years ago, at 16, to pursue music and modelling – since then I’ve had multiple jobs though! I’ve worked in call centres, I’ve been an estate agent, a receptionist, I’ve worked in bars too.
What is your typical day like?
I’m actually filming a “week in my life” vlog which will be up on my channel the second to last week of September so you guys can see for yourself :)
We love your videos; tell us more about the process through which a video goes before it is uploaded on YouTube. Do you have a team or you are one and only soul running this YouTube channel?
It’s just me. I have a list of video ideas and a rough schedule for when I want to post them. I film once or twice a week and upload at least once a week.
Tell us more about earnings opportunities through YouTube. Can one leave her full-time job and sustain with YouTube earnings?
At the moment, for me, making YouTube videos is a hobby and something I love doing. Who, Knows where it may lead in the future…

You don’t need fancy equipment to get started – just lots of ideas and the commitment to spend time filming/editing. Also, be consistent.
