Really Professional Internet Person

"I had to give up the idea that I would never fit in." -Jenn
About the Book
Setting: Illinois to LA
Symbol: Airplane- Represents Jenn's travels to and from LA
Purpose: Giving us advice on going from high school to the real world and how to get
started on YouTube.
What would I change?:
I would definitely change the fact that Jenn was bullied all through school pretty much every day back at home.
Similarities/Differences between her and I:
Same: We both want to follow our dreams, but not everyone supports us.
Different: Jenn moved across the country. I'm stuck in Oelwein, Iowa.
"My YouTube community in LA made me feel like I had a family even 3,00 miles away from home" -Jenn
Strengths/Weakness of the character:
Strength: Making videos and being a behind-the-screen entertainer.
Weakness: Anxiety and pretty much being shy around strangers.
How would the story be different if it had happened at a different time?:
If this had taken place about 10 years before Jenn's life would've been completely different. YouTube wasn't up then, so she could've still been a filmer or photographer, but she couldn't have been a YouTuber and I wouldn't be sitting here writing this report.
Compare to last read book:
I think the book I read last quarter (In Real Life by: Joey Graceffa) was better than the one I read this quarter. I honestly don't know why, but I feel like that one helped me a lot more. It might've been because that one was more an advice book than this one. They're both memoirs, but Joey really tried to help us out in his.
