Introduction to Bethany's Life

Bethany Mota was born on November 7, 1955 in Los Baneos,California. She is currently 20. When Bethany was Younger she and her sister got home schooled by her mom Tammy Mota, she was really shy so her parents decided to send them to a public school when she was in Third grade. When she got to middle school she did cheerleading for a while but then soon after she went back to homeschooling.

challenges and Obstacles

In 8th grade Bethany went back to school and she started getting bullied by a person that was close to her they made a fake Myspace page of her and people started putting mean comments of her but it didn't really bother her as much so she just ignored it. It wasn't until the person who was bullying her made her two best friends turn against her and the person kept saying mean things about her. She got really depressed and began to have problems with anxiety so She had to quit doing things she loves to do like her dance,acting and singing classes. Bethany said "It got to the point where I had really bad anxiety. I could barely eat. I would get excited because I could actually put one meal down. I didn't even want to hang out with family members. I couldn't go to the mall because I started get anxiety attacks when I was around a lot of people," . Bethany then joined the Youtube community and that helped her overcome all the depression and anxiety, she felt that with Youtube she had a voice. Today she is now one of the biggest beauty and fashion Youtubers with over 9 million subscribers and 8 million followers on Instagram and Twitter combined.
